The Coast Busters Walk for Breast Cancer, presented by Next Home Picket Fence
Realty, returns for the second year on Saturday, October 1 in Newport.
Kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this walk is the outcome of two local ladies’ desire to inspire hope for other women and their families struggling with breast cancer.
Recent breast cancer survivors themselves, Sonia Graham and Jeanette Campagna decided to make a difference in the lives of women and others in their own community battling breast
cancer and to give back to the community and medical teams that supported them. They
adopted the motto that something good can certainly come from something bad - and started
the first annual walk last year.
Last year’s walk attracted over 100 participants and proceeds of more than $14,000 for local
women battling cancer. The three-mile walk will again be held on the track at Newport High School. Proceeds raised from the event will stay local and benefit Pacific Communities Health District Foundation Women’s Cancer Fund and Willamette Valley Cancer Foundation. These organizations provide a wide array of support that aids breast cancer patients with many facets of their cancer treatment. It’s an opportunity to proudly raise awareness in the community and provide faith, courage, confidence, and hope for all women who have been affected by breast cancer.
Registration fees include a Coast Busters Walk t-shirt, pink ribbon pin, event festivities, and the power in knowing that women and their families fighting breast cancer will benefit significantly. Early bird registration is $25 until August 31 and guarantees an official event t-shirt. General registration is $35 from September 1-30. Registration on the day of the event is $45. Those who raise $150 or more will have their name publicly placed on the Coast Busters Honor Roll. People are encouraged to create a team and dress up in their favorite pink attire on Walk Day. Prizes will be awarded to the top three individual fundraisers and the those with the best themed attire. To register or donate, visit www.CoastBustersWalk.com. Sponsorships are also available with marketing benefits on official event flyers, t-shirts, social media, and more.
