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.
