Hundreds of survivors and supporters participated on Sunday, Sept. 28th in Ashburn and Middleburg for our 8th Annual Fall Fundraisers for local women with breast cancer. View picture galleries.
Just like last year:
- Ashburn's location was at Sanders Corner Elementary School, 43100 Ashburn Farm Parkway, Ashburn, VA
- Middleburg's event was at Foxcroft School, 22407 Foxcroft Road, Middleburg, VA
Both courses were 5Ks but walkers could also opt to do a two-mile course. Dogs were welcome at both locations, some were dressed up for the Pinkest Pooch Competition!
Remember that funds raised only support local women and are not sent to national organizations or out of the area.
Sponsors are needed, so please email us for a proposal.

As the single largest donation yet made to our organization, a very generous friend of Cherry Blossom has given us $50,000 to further our local work. The funds will quickly be awarded to provide better access to mammography for local women. This is the second large donation made by this donor to the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation for its local effort to detect, treat, educate, and eliminate breast cancer.
A capable and compassionate Leesburg breast surgeon, a generous and talented Reston CEO/Middleburg citizen, and a dynamic Loudoun women's organization have been selected as 2013 Cherry Blossom Champions.
Recognizing their significant contributions to the detection of breast cancer, the treatment of breast cancer, the education of women on the need for early and regular screenings, and/or the elimination of the disease, the cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation has named
Dr. Shannon Lehr, Mr. Michael Howland, and the non-profit, 100WOMENSTRONG as Cherry Blossom Champions.
The awards will be presented this coming March 8 in Middleburg at the third annual cherry Blossom Champion Award Dinner. For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
