About this team:
In April 2019, my dad passed away after battling an extremely aggressive form of prostate cancer. This team is being formed not only in his honor, but also to honor the many friends and loved ones who have battled or continue to battle cancer. Your strength and courage inspire me. Eff Cancer!
About this event:
Please take a moment to read a message from my friend, Karla. Founder of this incredible event, and a childhood friend since the age of six :)
The Anacortes Cancer Walk was created after the passing of my Dad, Barnel Bragg. He was treated at Island Hospital's Cancer Care Center for colon cancer and passed away in 2012.
After participating in dozens of walks around the state and seeing the proceeds go to CEO's, employees, marketing, and other various avenues I knew that she wanted to keep the proceeds of this walk local to Anacortes.
With the support from the community of Anacortes and surrounding communities, the Anacortes Cancer Walk has helped over 100 families being treated at Island Hospital's Merle Cancer Care Center.
In 2018 Your Story Foundation became a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity.
