Small Race Preview: C.A.T Walk and Fun Run (Hillsboro)


There are so many 4th of July races in beautiful Oregon! If you are anywhere near Hillsboro on the 4th, check out the C.A.T. Walk and Fun Run. This year marks their 19th year of fighting to eliminate barriers to cancer care! They are fighting because everyone deserves access to high quality and compassionate care! Last year (2018) alone, this race raised over $106,00 to acquire a new state-of-the art mobile mammography van for OHSU Tuality Healthcare. That van travels from Hillboro to the coast, bringing mammograms to under served women.

I am a 41 year-old runner from Dallas, OR. I am married to Jerry (also a runner) and we have three kids (one who will run with us on occasion). I work full time at West Valley Hospital/Salem Health and run as often as I can. I ran in High school but as an adult, started running in 2008. Since then, I have completed 13 full marathons, numerous 5k, 10ks and 15k. I've run two Ultras and just completed my 31st half marathon. My goal is the get my BQ in 2018 at Eugene Marathon! (Pinch me, I DID IT!!!) I also organize a local running group called ZaoFit (on facebook). I LOVE running with others - it is what keeps me motivated to stay consistent, and to keep dreaming big.
