The annual Sunriver Half Marathon for a Cause winds through a course that shows off some of the Sunriver Valley’s most spectacular views. But – as its name suggests – it’s not just about fresh air, fitness and peaceful panoramas. This is a race with purpose. In 2018, more than 450 runners of all ages raised $38,500 for the St. Charles Cancer Center in Bend, Oregon.
The proceeds from the Sunriver Half Marathon for a Cause deliver all kinds of important benefits:
- They enable St. Charles Cancer Center to ease patients’ financial obligations via groceries, gas cards, utility assistance and lodging;
- They support social workers who support patients through treatment;
- It pays for essential integrative therapies, such as Reiki, acupuncture and massage therapy.
