On Sunday, September 10, 2023, Sharsheret will gather on Dockweiler Beach for our Second Annual West Coast Dash in support of our breast and ovarian cancer work.

Our run/walk will include a 5K, 10K, Family Fun Race, and Event Festival. There is a virtual option available.

All ages, abilities and strollers welcome.


Check out what people are saying about Sharsheret and the West Coast Dash!

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
Jessica Jablon, California Regional Director
