About The Event

For more than 20 years, the Heaven Can Wait 5K has raised funds for Sara's Project, a fund of St. Charles Foundation. Sara's Project provides education, early detection and support services to ease the challenges of breast cancer for people in Central and Eastern Oregon. Throughout the COVID pandemic, those services have continued.

Heaven Can Wait was founded in 2000 by Charlene Levesque, a breast cancer survivor. Charlene's diagnosis prompted Central Oregon Running Klub (CORK) to begin formulating the idea of an event that would promote early detection of cancer and encourage a healthy active lifestyle.

To continue to keep our Central Oregon community safe, the 2021 Heaven Can Wait 5k will be hosted as a virtual event. Once you register, you will receive a printable bib number via email and you can complete a 5K on your own, in your own neighborhood with responsible social distancing, within the span of a week. This can be done outdoors or on a treadmill. While you're completing your 5K, please take pictures and share them with us so we can post them to our social channels. Or tag @STCHealth and @HCWCentralOregon (pictures set to public) on your post.

Your participation in Heaven Can Wait:
* Raises funds for Sara's Project.
* Educates the community about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
* Encourages community members to walk or run for their health.
* Ties the community together in a celebration of life
