My Breast Friends 5K

SUNDAY JUNE 13, 2021  @ ALTON BAKER PARK

 

Overview from Kelly Barton, founder

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer January 8, 2018. While walking with a friend, I was discussing how I should celebrate the end of chemo. I had been an avid runner for the last 8 years and participated in many local 5k’s and 10k’s. My friend reminded me that I had mentioned at one point, that it was secretly a dream of mine to plan a 5K event. The wheels started turning and we came up with the idea of “My Breast Friends 5K”.

I knew I wanted to benefit local cancer patients, so I reached out to Oregon Cancer Foundation. Planning the event was a great way to take my mind off of what I was going through. It gave me something exciting to look forward to at the end of my chemo treatments. Through connecting with Oregon Cancer Foundation, I found an amazing support system. The Support Groups, the Survivorship Series and friendships I made with other cancer survivors have been the biggest blessing.
