1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. To support our dear friend Christine, as well as all women who have fought and are still fighting breast cancer, we've organized this virtual 5k!
Christine Havrilla, who has graced so many of us with decades of inspiring music and performances, laughter, and great friendship, has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. The spread has targeted the bones in her hip and pelvis, causing her severe pain and difficulty walking. She has recently finished radiation and is now on a treatment plan that includes chemotherapy, several hormone targeted pills/injections, and a bone strengthening infusion, with morphine to help with the pain. She is, and has always been, one of the hardest working musicians out there. A portion of every registration will go directly to Christine to help with increasing medical bills.
Here's the deal:
When: Any time between July 1st and July 8th
Time: Any time that works with your schedule!
Where: A park, a trail, the beach, the sidewalk, or heck, even up and down the steps in your house!
How: Walk, run, crawl, hop, skip, even bike (hint, Papa Rilla!) your 3.1 miles! We know it's hot during this time of year, but a short bit of discomfort is nothing compared to what our dear friend is experiencing at this time!
Cost: $30 includes a medal, drawstring bag, bracelet, and a tank or t-shirt, AND a donation to Christine! (All items will be MAILED to the address you provide!)
Even if running isn't your thing, we encourage everyone to consider joining to support! Let's help Christine kick cancer's ass!
