Spring 2017 Cherry Blossom 5K Run, Walk & Pooch Prance for Breast Cancer
The first 2017 Cherry Blossom 5K Run, Walk and Pooch Prance for Breast Cancer will be held at Oatlands Plantation on Sunday April 23, 2017. Starting location will be at the North Entrance just off Route 15.
Benefiting only local women, Loudoun's own Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation once again expects hundreds of participants from Leesburg, Middleburg and the surrounding areas. We welcome women, men, children, and their pooches, to walk, run, or prance on at the Oatlands Plantation on Sunday April 23 to raise money for the local fight against breast cancer.
Online Registration is now open. Sign up as an individual or as a member of your team and help us hit our 2017 goal of at least 1,000 participants!
Once again the fundraiser is generously supported by Grand Sponsor, Middleburg Bank and will start at 1:00 PM. On-site registration will open at 11:30 AM at Oatlands Plantation, 20850 Oatlands Plantation Lane, Leesburg, VA 20175
The event will gather together breast health supporters and cancer survivors dressed in pink - with their pooches similarly sporting pink bandannas, hats, and tutus. The event will also include athletics and pet related vendors, a photo booth, raffles, and prizes for race participants and best costumes.
Since 2007, Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation has granted almost $750,000 to local organizations to help women with breast cancer. The all-volunteer non-profit plans to grant another $100,000 this year. The foundation also annually recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations fighting breast cancer with the Cherry Blossom Champion Award.
Register as an Individual or as part of a team. Teams are encouraged. Create your own team, as those of ten or more only pay $25 per person rather than the individual fee of $35.
Remember, that funds raised by Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation support only local women and are not sent to national organizations or out of the area.
