Pink Lemonade Project (PLP) will be the major beneficiary of the upcoming 15th annual Girlfriends Run/Walk on October 10, presented by WHY Racing Events.
Girlfriends Run/Walk includes a 6K, 10K, and half marathon to raise donations for breast cancer programs and services for patients in Oregon and SW Washington. Pink Lemonade Project invites the community to sign up as a Pink Brigade Guy or Glam Gal and raise or donate $500 or join the Walking Army. All registration details are available at https://girlfriendsrun.raceroster.com/.
Girlfriends Run was started to honor and support Joleen Skarberg who was diagnosed with breast cancer and continues to run it every year with her daughters, sisters, nieces, cousins, and girlfriends.
“I would like to invite you to join me for fun and exercise with the breast cancer community on October 10. Using roads through the new Vancouver Waterfront, Fort Vancouver, and other beautiful locations, it will be a wonderful morning for the breast cancer community to come together, as a way to celebrate and to honor those we have lost,” said Susan Stearns, chief executive officer. “While PLP served nearly 800 people last year, there is so much more work to be done to fill the gaps faced by patients today.”
