A Message from the Sunriver Marathon for a Cause
This year marks the fourth annual Marathon for a Cause at Sunriver Resort. We are proud to have the Oregon and SW Washington Komen Affiliate as our beneficiary again this year. Last year we raised over $21,000 for Komen and we hope to surpass that this year!
Komen Oregon and SW Washington has invested more than $30 million across Oregon and SW Washington - funding important research projects at OHSU and Providence and providing uninsured, low-income women with education, screening and access to treatment.
Komen advocacy work has added $1 million to the State of Oregon's fund that supports breast cancer screening. For the first time in the program's history, Komen's annual Breast Cancer Issues Conference went statewide this year and was sold out, with simulcasts in Bend, Medford and Roseburg. They recently launched a $1.5 million Latina Initiative - a bold, five-year project to tackle the disparity in late-stage diagnoses among Latinas head on.
The Marathon for a Cause will be held in beautiful Sunriver, Oregon on August 30th and 31st. We will be hosting a 5k, 10k, Kid's race, Half Marathon and Full Marathon. Our full marathon is a Boston qualifier and it is one of the last races that you can run to qualify for next year's Boston Marathon.
Register before July 16th to take advantage of our early bird specials!
We look forward to seeing you at the race supporting the cause with us!
