Join Us in 2019
Inspiring. Empowering. Celebratory. These are the three words our participants use most often to describe the Women’s Only 5K Walk and Run. Now in it’s 27th year, we invite you to join us for this one-of-a-kind event on Saturday, October 5, 2019.
Whether they are breast cancer survivors, avid runners, casual walkers or none of the above, women in the Triad love this event because of the support it provides to others in their breast cancer journey. Proceeds from the race fund the Cone Health Mammography Scholarship Fund and the Alight Program, which together can provide up to 600 uninsured or underinsured women a year with lifesaving mammograms, financial assistance, educational opportunities and emotional resources. Every dollar raised benefits breast cancer patients right here in our community.
The success of this event is a matter of life or death. As the second leading cause of death among women, breast cancer is so prevalent that one woman out of every eight will be diagnosed in her lifetime. That adds up to over 250,000 women each year in the United States. Each year, Cone Health sees over 1,000 breast cancer patients, so the need for your support is greater than ever before.
We hope you will help us make a difference. Help women in our community overcome the odds. Help us save even more lives this year. Remember every dollar raised by the race or donated to the Mammography Scholarship Fund and the Alight Program stays in our community.
