Walk 3to9 2019 - Registration Open for the 5k/10k/15k Charity Walk for Breast Cancer
Fundraising to benefit the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., July 24, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Fierce, Determined, Committed, Impassioned, Empowered – all adjectives used to describe the breast cancer community over the past two decades. But as multi-day events come and go, many alumni are left searching for a community to embrace – one that can help fuel their passion to make a difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. That's where Walk 3to9 can help. Established in July 2018, Walk 3to9 is a 5k/10k/15k (3/6/9 mile) charity walk organized by fellow alumni and walker coaches who share a common passion in the fight against breast cancer.
Through the scenic trails of Kenneth Hahn State Recreational Area, 300 walkers, survivors and volunteers from all over Southern California will come together on Sunday, September 15th to raise funding and awareness to benefit the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation (www.drsusanloveresearch.org), an organization that funds Breast Cancer research, including Metastatic. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation is dedicated to achieving a future without breast cancer by engaging the public and scientific communities in innovative research on cause and prevention. The Foundation is highly-respected worldwide and receives 4/4 stars on Charity Navigator, the highest rating awarded. To support the Love Foundation, Walk 3to9 participants are asked to fundraise $369 each, with a desired total event goal of $125,000.
“We’re excited to build on last year’s success of raising over $61,000 to fund breast cancer research,” said Jaki Kackert, Walk 3to9 Founder and Organizer. “The dedication and commitment of our walkers knows no limits. I’m certain that we can successfully meet this year’s goal, building on the momentum from last year’s inaugural walk.”
Added Irene Kelly, a long-time alumni of multi-day charity walks and an active participant of Walk 3to9, “I walk in the fight against breast cancer to raise awareness, raise funds, and raise HOPE for a cure.” A sentiment echoed in the hearts of everyone involved in Walk 3to9.
