Welcome to our Omatochi*HERS Breast Cancer Foundation 5K/10K Walk/Run Team Page!
We have joined the race held on September 24, 2022 from 8 AM to 12 PM to help those diagnosed with Breast Cancer and their families in need of support and allow them "a soft place to fall.”
The American Cancer Society estimates, in the United States for 2022, about 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women and about 2,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in men.
Join our team for the local HERS Breast Cancer Foundation 5K/10K Walk/Run, to benefit under-served breast cancer patients. Join us and ensure that low-income and under-insured patients receive the post-surgical products they need and deserve! Your support will help us continue improving the quality of care for those living with breast cancer disease.
