'Gram For Good: Grab Your iPhone & Join R29 To Fight Breast Cancer

1
Admit it, you're addicted to Instagram. It's okay, so is the rest of the world Refinery29. And, while you (and your followers) may love all those skyline shots and #nofilter sunset pics, we think it's high time to put your talents to good use. We've jumped on board with Nine West and the CFDA to join the Runway Relief Instagram Walk to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and prevention, and we want you to join us.
The walk will take place in four cities across the country — Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City — and all you need to participate is an Instagram account and your own two feet. Each city will have its own route through some seriously scenic 'hoods (think Central Park, Union Square Park, and Michigan Avenue, to name a few), with special landmark 'gramming challenges. You'll be able to walk for a cause, and challenge your friends to see who can snap the best shots — using the hashtag #RunwayRelief, of course.
If you'd like to step up to the plate lens, simply register here, and start hitting up everyone you know for donations. All the money you raise will go straight to the CFDA's Fashion Targets Breast Cancer Fund.
The best part? After you complete the walk, you'll be treated to a finale bash inside your resident Nine West boutique, where you'll down refreshments, enter to win amazing prizes, and swap Instagram tips with your local R29 editor. Sign up now, and start practicing your photog skills, stat.
