EVENT POSTPONED: This event was originally scheduled for June 5 at Drake Park, but will now be held sometime in October in Redmond.

The changes were made due to unforeseen logistical challenges in trying to hold the event at Drake Park.

The new date and location will be announced as soon as details are confirmed. At that time, participants will have the option of keeping their registration, receiving a refund, deferring it until next year or donating their registration fee to the St. Charles Foundation.

“While we are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused our participants who have already registered, we are excited about bringing Heaven Can Wait to Redmond, which will make the race more accessible to people throughout Central Oregon,” said Mari Shay, administrative director of Cancer Services. “It will also be held in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time devoted to educating everyone about breast cancer.”

Proceeds from Heaven Can Wait go to Sara’s Project, which helps provide vital support services to people in our community who are battling breast cancer. Throughout its 23-year history, Heaven Can Wait has become a time-honored tradition for the community to come together and celebrate cancer survivors while also remembering the loved ones we’ve lost. 

Registration is now closed and will go back online when we have finalized dates. Please check back soon.

Thank you for your past participation in the St. Charles Heaven Can Wait 5K and we look forward to seeing you in October!
