Cancer Center of Santa Barbara In Step with Barbara Ireland Walk for the Cure

All proceeds from the April 24 event will support clinical research

Those in the community interested in joining the effort to fight breast cancer are encouraged to attend the 10th Annual Barbara Ireland Walk for the Cure of Breast Cancer on Saturday, April 24 at Chase Palm Park, hosted by the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara.

All proceeds from the event will support cutting-edge breast cancer clinical research at the Cancer Center.

About 2.4 million women in the United States are living with breast cancer and, on average, a woman in the United States has a one in eight chance of developing invasive breast cancer during her lifetime.

In addition to promoting awareness, the Barbara Ireland Walk hopes to raise $100,000 to fund research. The Cancer Center’s clinical research program is recruiting patients for 10 breast cancer trials and continues to collect data in more than 30 trials. To date, the program has enrolled more than 200 patients in the community.

The Barbara Ireland Walk for the Cure will begin — rain or shine — at 8 a.m. April 24 with a 10-mile walk/run (shorter course options are available) along a scenic beach route. Participants are invited to stay for the fun at 10 a.m., which includes a silent auction, raffle, lunch and music.

Participant registration is $50, including day-of registration at 7:30 a.m. Children age 12 or younger can enter for $20.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
