Heaven Can Wait 5K Run/Walk
St. Charles Foundation's annual Heaven Can Wait 5K walk/run for breast cancer has grown to become one of the largest 5K races in Central Oregon.
Each year on National Cancer Survivors Day, the first Sunday in June, the Heaven Can Wait 5K draws thousands to Bend’s Drake Park with a shared mission to raise funds for Sara’s Project. Sara’s Project raises funds to provide education, early detection and support services to ease the challenges of breast cancer for people in in Central and Eastern Oregon.
Heaven Can Wait, founded in 2000 by Charlene Levesque, a breast cancer survivor. Charlene’s diagnosis prompted Central Oregon Running Klub (CORK) to begin formulating the idea of a women’s event that would promote early detection of cancer and encourage a healthy active lifestyle.
