The HERS Breast Cancer Foundation’s 5K/10K Run/Walk and Community Expo brings hundreds of breast cancer patients, survivors, and supports from all over the Bay Area. Gathering for fun and exercise, we rally family, friends and neighbors to raise funds to benefit survivors. The money goes to support our programs, which provide specialty bras, prostheses, wigs, and lymphedema garments that help women heal and feel whole after breast cancer treatment. With your generous donations, we are able to provide their products and services regardless of a client’s ability to pay.
