With Record Turnout, Barbara Ireland Breast Cancer Walk Raises $53,250

The March 11 Barbara Ireland Walk and Run for Breast Cancer, presented by the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara, reached a record turnout with more than 440 walkers and runners participating at Chase Palm Park for the 5K, 10K and 15K walk and run courses.

Thanks go out to all the walkers, runners, volunteers and sponsors who helped raise more than $53,250 toward local breast cancer research, genetic counseling and patient navigation at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara with Sansum Clinic.

Congratulations to team Save 2nd Base which surpassed Fitness with Rachel, the previous recipient of the Pink Trophy award for two years running, by raising in excess of$8,500. Thanks also go to team Save 2nd Base for its support of breast cancer programs in the Santa Barbara community.

There still is time to donate to the Barbara Ireland Walk and Run benefitting the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, and it is an exciting time to get involved as the new Cancer Center will open in September at 540 W. Pueblo St.

The center will bring the latest technology, physicians and patient-centered care under one roof. To donate, contact Stephanie Carlyle, 898-2116, or visit

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!
