Sharsheret West Coast Dash – 5K/10K/Family Fun Race/Virtual Option

Register and Donate

On Sunday, September 18, 2022, Sharsheret will gather on Dockweiler Beach for our First Annual West Coast Dash in support of our breast and ovarian cancer work.

Our run/walk will include a 5K, 10K, Family Fun Race, Virtual Race, and Event Festival.

All ages, abilities and strollers welcome.

Why this race? Why now?

Whether it touched your mom, your best friend, your brother or even you, Sharsheret
knows that breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and hereditary risk for cancer is a family issue.
Instead of hosting our annual traditional gala, we are gathering our community on the
beach for a morning of fun and fitness for all ages. Join us in supporting Sharsheret’s
life changing and lifesaving work.

Thank you for your participation and support,

Carri Garelick & Stacy Kent, Race Co-Chairs
Jenna Fields, California Regional Director
