Gran Fondo Celebrates 10th Anniversary
Jazmine Walker with her mom, Edna
In 2011, Jazmine Walker lost her battle with cancer at the age of 23. As she underwent treatment, the Cancer Special Needs Fund made her journey a little easier, covering the cost of a beautiful wig. Once, when Jaz was in terrible pain, the Fund helped provide a gift card so she could buy a treat for herself. It was Jazmine's final wish that her family and friends continue the fight on her behalf by supporting Gran Fondo and raising money for other local cancer patients in need.
Saturday, September 20th, 2014
Join hundreds of survivors and supporters at the Walla Walla Community College Dietrich Dome to participate in this local event. Your registration fee will provide hope to local cancer patients: a gas card for the dad who can't afford to drive to treatment, a wig for the young woman who's just lost her hair, or a gift card for the neighbor who can't afford his medicine.
Choose from several fun events: walking, cycling, horseback riding or a color fun run. End the journey with an Oktoberfest lunch, free for all participants (served from 11:30am--2:00pm).
Individuals: $45 Survivors: $25 Families (Parents and their children under 18, up to 5 people): $65 Teams of 10+: $25 each
Children 5 and under are free
