Join 1,000 runners and walkers for the 9th Annual Empowerment Day Walk, Run & Race on Sunday, August 3, 2013. Offering a timed 5K and 10K walk or run option, along with an untimed 1-mile Family Fun Walk, the course offers a casual stroll or an invigorating run along the peaceful Clackamas River and throughout the quaint town of Gladstone.

Empowerment Day is an opportunity for families, businesses, survivors and supporters from surounding communities to come together for a common cause. Like in years past, dogs and strollers are welcome!

Empowerment Day supports the SHOC Foundation’s mission to provide funding for ovarian cancer research, to educate women about early detection of ovarian cancer, and to empower women recovering from ovarian cancer to find emotional, spiritual and physical balance and well-being. All proceeds less operation costs from the event will be donated to the Gynecologic Research Lab at OHSU Knight Cancer Institute in Portland.

2012’s event raised $35,000, and we’re hoping to reach $50,000 for 2013!

    Love racing and I really want to do a 10k. I can’t afford the registration; single mom on limited budget.

    I made it a goal to do a 5k a month for this year. This one would be a good one to add.

    Would love to do this walk! There’s a history of ovarian cancer in my family and would love to attend in honor of those women. I wouldn’t be here without them :) Hope I win!

    I leave for the Army on the 5th, this would be an awesome event to start off my last weekend here in Portland, while also allowing me to get a fun run in.

    Lost a grandmother to ovarian cancer ling before I was born. She was a beautiful Greek immigrant and I rue that I never had a chance to meet her. I hope I’m chosen so I can honor her memory and prevent women from having to die before their grandchildren are even born. Thank you.

    My name is Sherrie! I’d love to run in the Sherie Hildreth Ovarian Cancer Foundation 10k. This would be my first 10k ever! I just started running with a dear friend last year, and have done a few 5ks.

    We wish we could pick each of you. Your intent means more than you know! Though we had to pick one of you, we hope that each of you considers coming out to support our local, 100% volunteer operated organization serving women (and men who have women in their lives). Thank you all!
