Heather Taylor was just 25 when she was diagnosed with stage 3b, HER2 positive, breast cancer. As family, friends, and Heather embarked on the cancer journey, we started learning about all the organizations devoted to helping women. Some were committed to research, for others it was awareness and prevention, but we couldn’t find an organization to help with the everyday costs of living with, fighting, and surviving. It became clear that we could use her experience to help other women diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
The Hope for Heather Foundation is a CHARITY PARTNER for this year's Colfax Road Races on May 19 & May 20 (relay teams, 5k, 10 miler, 1/2 Marathon, and Full Marathon). We have an ambitious fundraising goal of $10,000 total, with all the money going back to the helping those effected by Breast Cancer. We hope to have a team of 40 participants between the Saturday 5k and the Sunday race events, and encourage each participant to create your own fundraising campaign (click the 'create your campaign' button on this page) with a goal of $250!
The more people that know about the 2018 Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon, the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity. It means a lot!
