On Saturday August 4th, 2012, the Sherie Hildreth Ovarian Cancer Foundation will be holding their 8th annual Empowerment Day Run & Walk. For those looking to be involved this year, hurry! Online registration closes tomorrow, August 1st at 10pm.
Join 1,000 runners and walkers on Saturday, August 4th, 2012. Offering a timed 5k and 10k walk or run option, along with an untimed 1-Mile Family Fun Walk, the course offers a casual stroll or an invigorating run along the peaceful Clackamas River and throughout the quaint town of Gladstone, Oregon. Empowerment Day is an oppurtunity for families, business, survivors and supporters from surrounding communities to come together for a common cause. Like in years past, dogs and strollers are welcome!
Empowerment Day supports the SHOC Foundation’s mission to provide funding for ovarian cancer research, to educate women about early detection of ovarian cancer, and to empower women recovering from ovarian cancer to find emotional, spiritual and physical balance and well-being. All proceeds less operational costs from the event will be donated to the Gynecologic Research Lab at OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute in Portland, Oregon.
2011′s event raised $38,000, and we’re hoping to reach $50,000 for 2012!
