Welcome to Cancer Center Walk/Run 2014
Sunday, October 12
On Sunday, October 12, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara and the Four Seasons Resort Santa Barbara will host the 22nd Annual Cancer Center Walk/Run. One hundred percent of registration fees and pledges benefit the Cancer Center’s research and supportive care programs.
The family-friendly event will begin and end at Montecito Union School and includes: a 10K Run at 8:00am; a 5K Walk/Run at 8:30am; and a Kids’ Fun Run at 10:00am. Participants are invited to stay for a delicious, complimentary brunch buffet provided by the Four Seasons Resort Santa Barbara, and an exciting raffle including gift certificates for local restaurants, spas and attractions.
To date, the Walk/Run has raised over $2.5 million in support of local cancer research. Special incentives are offered for individuals who collect pledges of at least $100, including free event registration and one entry into the GRAND PRIZE drawing for airfare for 2 with lodging at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in Hawaii – valued at over $4,500!
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 instrumental in helping to organize the Walk/Run, seeking sponsors, and leading the Free 6-Week Training Program. This will mark the sixth year of the event since Julie’s passing, but her legacy will once again be honored with recognition of a cancer survivor who exemplifies what Julie Main 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 and Rosalyn Collins.
