RUNNING WITH LOVE
TO SUPPORT THOSE
AFFECTED BY BREAST CANCER
Our community ran with love in the 14th annual Girfriends’ Run in October 2020 — and raised $55,387!
They walked, they ran, they showed their love and support for those affected by breast cancer – and the community is truly grateful! In all, WHY Racing’s event raised $55,387, thanks to 736 athletes, 52 breast cancer survivors, 62 kids with athletes participating from 12 different states.
Pink Lemonade Project’s teams, the Pink Brigade Guys and Glam Gals, went all out this year despite the virtual format. From showing up decked out in pink gear at the Waterfront Renaissance Trail in Vancouver, WA, to layering camo with pink tutu’s while hunting in Carson, WA, our resilient teams accomplished their distance goals, and raised $47,315 for Pink Lemonade Project’s programs.
An additional $7,934 was raised for the Jamie Wyatt Miller Cancer Compassion Fund at PeaceHealth Southwest Washington Medical Center to help low-income cancer patients.
These funds will assist in propelling our mission forward so that we can continue to offer assistance and be a vital resource for individuals and families who are going through and are affected by breast cancer across our breast cancer community.
A special thank you to our team captains Scot Brantley of the Pink Brigade Guys and Adrienne San Nicholas of the Glam Gals.
Thanks also to Why Racing for coordinating all aspects of the race, from registration to marking off the route along the waterfront to securing extra special swag for all the athletes.
The abundance of love and community support was inspiring, especially during a challenging year. Thank you to everyone who participated in the many ways needed to pull off a successful event. We could not have done it without you!
We hope you will join us at our 2021 event as a runner, walker, or volunteer!
