Pink Ribbon Racers are running December 4th at Thompson International Speedway Half -Marathon and 5k to raise money for Saint Francis Hospital - Hoffman Breast Center. The amount we raise from this event goes directly to help pay for free mammograms for those who cannot afford the testing or their insurance does not cover the cost. This fundraising event is a very personal one . I was diagnosed with breast cancer 15 months ago through a routine mammogram. My cancer was so small, as only to be seen by mammography. Since the diagnosis. Saint Francis has been instrumental in my care. Through all of my surgeries and reconstruction, the staff and Doctors at Saint Francis have always treated me with compassion, kindness , always understood my needs as a pateint. My wish is for every woman to have access to the best healthcare that Saint Francis provides. Education and Early detection helps saves lives . Help us save lives . Join our team , or donate today.
