“If one in three people get cancer in their lifetime” says JUGS president and founder Amy Vixie. “Then the need for our help is really out there,” she said. “We love to have these events, and give everyone the opportunity to enjoy a night out. But these events are also about recognizing cancer survivors. And recognizing the need in our community to bridge the gap between help that’s available to them, and the real need we all face for the things that aren’t covered.”
“Last year, JUGS raised thousands of dollars for local cancer patients with this event.” said JUGS vice president and treasurer Traci Jensen. “We’re hoping to meet and exceed that amount this year with ticket sales, donations and our raffle.”
Just Us Girls Sharing has partnered with The Chocolate Shop Wine in putting together a 10k and Half Marathon for Saturday Morning that starts and ends at the tasting room, located at 31 E Main in Walla Walla. Start your day with a little run and end it with some fun at the Pink Ball. Registration for the 10k and Half Marathon is $25.
JUGS is a local non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for local cancer patients.
