We encourage all participants to meet a $100 minimum fundraising goal.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of West Seattle on our 3.1 journey. We have created a gorgeous waterfront 5K route (that's 3.1 miles), and our route includes Alki Beach and the restored Bathhouse, Alki Beach Park, Anchor Park, and stunning views of the Seattle waterfront. There are hydration and cheering stations along the way, as well as restrooms and first aid for your comfort and safety.
Help raise money and awareness by participating in or contributing to our annual 5k walk/run. Our goal is to keep expenses and overhead to a minimum, allowing the majority of funds raised to go directly to the women who need it. Each runner/walker is asked to gather pledges of $100 or more. The money raised will enable us to assist breast cancer patients through their journey with personalized support.
