Challenge Runs

That’s a wrap on our 2022 Sam Day Challenge events!! Close to 700 champions for childhood cancer research participated during the month-long 37-mile challenge, including 400 in person at the 5K.

Per our tradition, we named an honorary #37 at the 5K – Mariah, a cancer survivor – who kicked off the race in her gilded golf cart.

We were also fortunate to have Mayor of Beaverton Lacey Beaty at the race, who addressed the crowd to highlight the good work SDF is doing.

Kids had a blast doing the kids’ race/obstacle course combo, and we had our best-ever raffle which raised more than $3,000 all on its own.

Thanks to everyone far and wide for being a part of it!
