2022 Heaven Can Wait
Please join us Sunday, Oct. 2 as we host the 23rd Heaven Can Wait 5K walk/run in Redmond, Ore. We will gather at the Redmond High School football field for the pre-event celebration. The walk/run will start at 10:30 a.m. as the course takes you into Redmond’s Dry Canyon.
Heaven Can Wait draws hundreds to together with a shared mission to raise funds for Sara's Project, a fund of St. Charles Foundation. Sara's Project provides education, early detection and support services to ease the challenges of breast cancer for people in Central and Eastern Oregon.
Heaven Can Wait was founded in 2000 by Charlene Levesque, a breast cancer survivor. Charlene's diagnosis prompted Central Oregon Running Klub (CORK) to begin formulating the idea of a women's event that would promote early detection of cancer and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.
Your participation in Heaven Can Wait:
* Raises funds for Sara's Project.
* Educates the community about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
* Encourages community members to walk or run for their health.
* Brings the community together in a celebration of life
Thank you for your past participation in the St. Charles Heaven Can Wait 5K and we look forward to seeing you in October!
