Run/Walk to Combat Breast Cancer

October 13 will mark the 13th running of the Annual Girlfriends Run for a Cure held in Vancouver, WA. The event offers a half marathon, 10K and 5K, and was designed to bring women together to support and raise funds for breast cancer research, care and treatment. Expect a healthy combination of running and walking. The main objective of the day is to get out, connect, and raise funds for a worthy cause. The event began as a way to honor and support, Joleen Skarberg, who was diagnosed with breast cancer but continues to run the event every year wearing bib #1.

This walking and running event is designed specifically for women. Participants can expect to receive a women’s technical shirt, medal, chocolate, treats, plus massages and praise from firemen, who will be waiting at the finish.
