THE GIRLFRIENDS AND PINK BRIGADE HAVE RAISED NEARLY $350,000 OVER THE LAST 8 YEARS!The 9th Annual Girlfriends Run for a Cure is a Quarter Marathon (6.55 miles) and a Half Marathon (13.1 miles) designed specifically for women to get together to do something good for themselves and to help support a very important women's cause.
We started this event to honor and support one of our BFFs, Joleen Skarberg, who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and continues to run it every year with her daughters, sisters, nieces, cousins and girlfriends! Watch for her - she'll be wearing #1!
So tell all your girlfriends, recruit & inspire them and together have fun and help raise funds for Breast Cancer Research, Care, Treatment & a Cure. This Half and Quarter Marathon walking and running event is designed specifically for women including awesome women’s technical shirts, cool medals, chocolate, cupcakes, massage and firemen waiting for you at the finish line! It's a fabulous Girl's weekend plus the more people who participate, the more money we can raise!
This event is one of my all time favorites. It's incredible--every single detail is just filled with tons and tons of LOVE. It's coming up in just over a week, and I definitely encourage all of my lady friends to consider registering for this women-only race that showcases Vancouver's downtown, Fort Vancouver, and the waterfront <3
