October is breast cancer awareness month and we like to contribute by holding our Joggermom
Cancer Run. Anyone anywhere can now contribute at their convenience while challenging themselves on a 26.2 mile marathon that can be done over the course of a whole month.  You can run more one day and less another or just run all 26.2 miles over a weekend. It is all up to you and after it all, you get a great 2.5 inch medal along with knowing you just contributed 20% of your ticket to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

 

Details:
Run: 26.2 Miles
Date: October 1 – 31, 2014
Why: Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.
  • 20% of proceeds goes to the National Breast Cancer Foundation

  • Great place to hang out with like minded people
  • Real medals (a 2.5 inch medal with an original design.)

The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission is to help women now by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.  NBCF is a stabilizing force in the lives of hundreds of thousands of women who have reached a crossroad in their lives and need a helping hand to get across the bridge. NBCF offers free, innovative programs that other organizations aren’t providing to women facing breast cancer.   These programs include:
