Now in its 10th year, the SHOC Foundation invites participants to stroll, jog or race alongside the Clackamas River and throughout the city of Gladstone, Oregon on Saturday, August 2. The purpose of the SHOC Walk & Run is to raise funds for Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancer research, increase public awareness of the diseases, and provide ongoing support to survivors.
Onsite registration will begin at 6:30 am at Latus Motors Harley-Davidson in Gladstone. After a brief opening ceremony, the 5K/10K Walks and Runs, and 1-Mile Family Walk, will begin at 8 am. Participants return to a Pancake & Griddle Breakfast, served complimentary to all. Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancer survivors are invited to enjoy an exclusive Survivor Breakfast.
Participants will enjoy entertainment by the Last Regiment of Syncopated Drummers and the delights of the Rose City Rollers, Kink.fm personalities, and the Rose City Hogs. This year’s event goal is $65,000.
The Sherie Hildreth Ovarian Cancer (SHOC) Foundation is a 100% volunteer operated 501c3 nonprofit organization. Dedicated to finding a cure, the Foundation has donated $550,000 for Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancer research at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Knight Cancer Institute. Sherie Hildreth’s five-year battle with Ovarian Cancer ended in 2009, but her legacy lives on through the Foundation. The SHOC Walk & Run commemorates her courageous battle, her passion for helping survivors on their journey, her tenacity in raising awareness of the disease, and her relentless pursuit to raise the funds necessary to find a cure.
