The 13th Annual Girlfriends Run for a Cure offers a Half Marathon (13.1 miles), 10K & 5K designed specifically for women to get together to do something good for themselves and to help support a very important women's cause.

We started this event to honor and support one of our BFFs, Joleen Skarberg, who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and continues to run it every year with her daughters, sisters, nieces, cousins and girlfriends! Watch for her - she'll be wearing #1!

About half the gals run, half walk and many do a combination of running and walking. It doesn't matter how you get to the finish line, as long as you get there! :)

So tell all your girlfriends, recruit & inspire them and together have fun and help raise funds for Breast Cancer Research, Care, Treatment & a Cure. This walking and running event is designed specifically for women including awesome women’s technical shirts, cool medals, chocolate, treats, massage and firemen waiting for you at the finish line! It's a fabulous Girl's weekend plus the more people who participate, the more money we can raise!

How do you describe your best girlfriend? You love to hang with her – no matter what you’re doing. You can tell her anything without judgment. She inspires you to do and be better. She lifts you up and empowers you. She helps you to see the bright side when you’re going through a tough time. You can laugh and cry and sometimes just do nothing with her. So who is your best girlfriend? Is it your mom, your sis, your daughter, someone you’ve known for years or someone you just met recently? One thing is consistent – it’s someone you connect with on a deep level, a soul sister. And bottom line - when girlfriends get together they can accomplish anything! There’s nothing better, more beautiful than a bunch of strong, powerful, passionate women on a mission! And that’s why collectively, as a group of determined gals, we can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Plus when you cross the finish line, you can’t imagine how that positively impacts YOUR entire life. The sense of accomplishment you will feel is unbelievable and it will provide you with the strength and confidence to conquer anything in your life. So – “Go Girlfriend Go Girlfriend Go!”
