The 9th Annual Beat BC 5k took place on October 20 at Central Noble High School in Albion, IN. This event originated with Judy Hass and her family to benefit local women with breast cancer. I have attended this event many times and am always amazed at the large number of people who come together each year to help their friends and family who have a cancer diagnosis. All proceeds are donated to our organization to help those people in our area who are dealing with the disease.
This year, the event raised $12,000!! Thank you to Judy, her family and all the participants for this donation to help local people with cancer.
The Beat Breast Cancer 5K began 8 years ago as an event to help raise money for our organization. This year’s event will be held on October 20. The entry form is available online and participants of all skill sets are welcome to take part in the run, walk, or fun run!
Last year the race saw 242 participants cross the finish lines in an effort to raise funds and awareness in the Noble County area. Please join them again and make this another successful year for the Beat Breast Cancer 5K!
We say it over and over again, but it’s worth repeating: We could not do what we do without the support of our community. We are so grateful to the Noble County Community Foundation for it’s continued support. Last week our Outreach Coordinator Linda Bewley and Executive Director Dianne May visited the foundation and were presented with a $1,000 check. In addition to the foundation’s support, we were surprised to discover we were selected by P.U.L.S.E, a youth philanthropy group, to receive an additional $500.
