Why Participate?

  • Because the greatest risk factors for breast cancer are getting older and being a woman.
  • Because breast cancer knows no boundary of age, gender, socioeconomic status, or geographic location.
  • Because one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
  • Because everyone deserves a lifetime.

Exciting Additions to Race this Year

  • Team T-shirt Competition – Show off your artistic skills and enter your best design in our NEW Team T-shirt Contest!  A panel will judge all entries and select the top 5 shirts, which will be displayed on Race Day for a public vote.  The shirt with the most “votes” ($1 dollar = 1 vote) will be declared the winner.  The winning shirt will be announced during the awards ceremony on Race Day!
  • Team TailgatingLooking for a space all to your own on Race Day??  Teams that raise $4,000 by Wednesday, October 17th will receive their own “tailgating” tent.  We will provide each team with tables, chairs, water, and team name signage.  So be sure to start your fundraising early to take advantage of this new program!
