Saturday, August 4, the SHOC Foundation will kick off its 14th Annual SHOC Walk & Run at Latus Motors Harley-Davidson in support of ovarian and gynecologic cancer research.
The Sherie Hildreth Ovarian Cancer (SHOC) Foundation is a 100% volunteer-operated 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Dedicated to finding a cure, the Foundation has donated $900,000 for ovarian and gynecologic cancer research at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Knight Cancer Institute. You can read about previous research funded by SHOC in this Oregon Jewish Life 2016 article.
Sherie Hildreth lost her life in 2009 after a five-year battle with ovarian cancer, but her legacy lives on. The SHOC Walk & Run commemorates and celebrates her courageous fight, her will to support women living with gynecologic cancers, her tenacity to raise awareness of these diseases, and her relentless pursuit to raise the funds necessary to develop an early detection screening, or even better, a cure.
Participants will enjoy a beautiful 5K/10K walk or run or a 1-mile family walk alongside the Clackamas River and throughout the city of Gladstone. A warm pancake and griddle breakfast will welcome back participants as they return from the course. Gynecologic cancer survivors may indulge in an exclusive sit-down breakfast at their leisure beginning at 8:30am.
Other attractions include massage, music, the Last Regiment of Syncopated Drummers, face painting, vendors, the Rose City Rollers and the Rose City Hogs.
The event will begin at 7:30 am with an opening ceremony facilitated by KATU’s Rhonda Shelby, and the horn will sound at 8 am to begin the walk and run. Online registration is open until July 31, and on-site registration will be available Friday, Aug. 3 and the morning of the event, Aug. 4. Early bird pricing is available until July 15 and discounted pricing is available for groups of four or more. All details, including registration, sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available online at www.shocfoundation.org.
