On a glorious winter Saturday, hundreds of participants took to the streets along Santa Barbara’s waterfront for the 15th annual Barbara Ireland Walk and Run for Breast Cancer.

The day’s festivities were hosted by Barbara Ireland, her family and the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara.

Walkers, runners and cheering sections gathered at Chase Palm Park on East Cabrillo Boulevard for 5K, 10K or 15K versions of the course, which stretched along the waterfront and coastline.

All of the funds raised from event registration fees and pledges will benefit breast cancer research and programs at the Cancer Center, officials said.

Among the programs offered by the Cancer Center are cancer fighting agents available in the community, genetic counseling and patient navigation, which offers patients a consistent care coordinator during their experience with breast 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!
