Race 4 Hope
JOPLIN – The Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation has found a way to bring back the Race 4 HOPE in 2021. The event will be held virtually this year.
The June 2020 run was canceled due to COVID-19 pandemic concerns. Since many breast
cancer survivors and patients still going through treatment attend the event every year, the
Hope 4 YOU Board of Directors voted to host the 2021 race in a virtual format.
The event still has an official date:
Saturday, June 5th, 2021
All participants are encouraged to run or walk their 5K on June 5th and post their results to our Hope 4 YOU Facebook page. Anyone unavailable that day may post their results the week before or the week after that date. The cost is $25. Participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. We hope to be back to an in-person, full-scale event in 2022.
The Race 4 HOPE is one of Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation’s biggest fundraisers. Hope 4 You raises money to provide mammograms for uninsured and under-insured women in the Four States that need them. All money raised stays in our local surrounding Joplin/Pittsburg area. We’ve raised more than $500,000 in this effort since our organization began in 2007.
