On Sunday, October 6, 2019, the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara and Four Seasons Resort Santa Barbara will host the 27th annual Cancer Center Walk/Run. Help us reach our goal of $200,000! One hundred percent of these funds will support the cancer research and patient supportive care programs at Ridley-Tree Cancer Center at Sansum Clinic. The Walk/Run has raised $3,620,135 since its inception in 1993.
The family-friendly event begins and ends at Montecito Union School and includes a 10K Run at 8:00 am, a 5K Walk/Run at 8:30 am and a Kids’ Fun Run at 10:00 am. Participants are invited to stay for a delicious, complimentary breakfast provided by Four Seasons Resort Santa Barbara, and an exciting raffle including gift certificates for local restaurants, spas and attractions.
Registration is open now at www.cfsb.org/walkrun2019 . The registration fee is $45 thru September 15, increasing to $55 from September 16 – October 3 and $65 from October 4 – 6. The cost for children 12 and under participating in the Kids’ Fun Run is $20. Special incentives are offered for individuals who collect at least $100 in pledges, including free event registration and one entry into the GRAND PRIZE drawing for airfare for two with lodging at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in Hawaii – valued at over $4500.
Three team prizes are also awarded to the largest team, the team that generates the most money and the “First Place Team,” which raises the most money on average per person. In addition to recognizing teams and participants for their outstanding fundraising efforts, one individual will be awarded the Julie Main Inspiration of Hope Award. Since the event’s inception, Julie Main was inspirational in helping to organize the Walk/Run, seeking sponsors and leading the 6-Week Training Program. This year marks the eleventh year of the event since Julie’s passing, but her legacy will be honored with recognition of a cancer survivor who exemplifies what Julie stood for – courage, perseverance and hope – serving as an inspiration to others by finding the strength to cope with cancer through exercise. Previous recipients of the award include Michael Orchowski, Lorena Ortiz-Schneider, Kate Ocean, Reggie Hepp, Rosalyn Collins, Mara Hochman, Sue Suttner, Patricia MacFarlane, Jack Bianchi and Dan Manfredonia.
All funds raised will benefit the Clinical Research Program and the Supportive Care Programs at Ridley-Tree Cancer Center.
The Walk/Run also benefits the Supportive Care Programs at the cancer center which include a cancer resource library, genetic counseling, patient navigation, nutrition, wellness classes, music therapy and social work services. These programs allow the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center to provide patients with comprehensive and personalized resources and care to assist them on their journey with cancer.
