Event benefits Celebrate Life and Community Cancer
FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, 7B Women, Inc. will hold its Boobs ‘N Beer Fun Run and Oktoberfest Celebration to benefit Community Cancer Services and Celebrate Life, and it’s an event you won’t want to miss!
Co-sponsored by MickDuff’s Brewing Company, this year’s event promises to be fun for the whole family. A 5k fun run along Sand Creek Trail is followed by an Oktoberfest celebration at MickDuff’s Beer Hall complete with musical entertainment by Harold’s IGA and food trucks from Old Tin Can and another to be announced soon.
The 2016 inaugural event raised more than $10,000 with the proceeds divided equally between Community Cancer Services and Celebrate Life, both of which are local organizations that assist people in our community who have been diagnosed with cancer.
“There are so many people in North Idaho who have benefited from the services of these two organizations, but unfortunately the need continues to grow,” said 7B board member and co-chair of the event, Alice Sloane. “It is important to 7B Women to do our part to make sure that the funds are available so Celebrate Life and Community Cancer Services can continue to assist cancer patients by enriching their lives and helping them thrive through a very difficult time.”
Local women founded both organizations at a time when they were battling cancer. Heather Gibson founded Community Cancer Services in 2002, and she passed away in August of 2006. Celebrate Life was founded by Jenny Meyer in 2004. Jenny lost her battle with cancer in June of 2008. The mission and vision of both women have continued to move forward through the years thanks to those in the generous community these women called home.
This year’s Boobs ‘N Beer Fun Run and Oktoberfest will take place on Sunday, October 1. There are various sponsorship levels available, and people of all ages are welcome to participate in the run/walk. Registration includes a T-shirt, which is guaranteed for those who register by September 8, and a token for a free beer—or root beer—at MickDuff’s Beer Hall.
