Barbara Ireland Breast Cancer Fundraising Walk This Saturday

Cancer Center of Santa Barbara hosts ninth annual 10-mile Walk/Run

Approximately 3 million people in the United States are living with breast cancer, and in hopes of bringing down that number, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara is hosting the ninth annual Barbara Ireland Walk for the Cure on Saturday at Chase Palm Park.

The walk aims to build awareness for disease and raise more than $100,000 to fund breast cancer research. The event will also feature a silent auction, which will benefit breast cancer research. All proceeds from the walk will go directly to the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara for clinical breast research and trials.

Joining members of the community and Cancer Center staff and volunteers will be Barbara Ireland and her family.

The walk includes a 10-mile Walk/Run. Late registration begins at 7 a.m. and the walk at 8:30 a.m. Saturday from Chase Palm Park, 323 E. Cabrillo Blvd.

Participants may register online until Thursday at www.ccsb.org, in person at the Cancer Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, or by calling 805.898.2116.

The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara is an independent, nonprofit corporation, providing state-of-the-art cancer treatment. Since 1949, through the charitable giving of families and foundations, the center has stayed in the vanguard of comprehensive, nonsurgical, outpatient cancer care. By retaining highly trained and devoted medical personnel, acquiring the latest technology and protocols, and integrating patient support and wellness programs, the Cancer Center treats those on the journey to live with, through, and beyond cancer.

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!
