Annual Native Breast Cancer Awareness Walk/Run.


Welcome to our Native Breast Cancer Awareness Walk/Run event page! We are excited for this year’s amazing event. Every year, we seem to gather more families which is what makes this event special. For those who are joining us for the first time, welcome. For those who are returning for year 2 or year 4 or maybe year 8, THANK YOU for reminding us that even through this time of resiliency, nothing can hold back FAMILY STRONG! Please stay tuned for updates on our 8th Annual Native Breast Cancer Walk/Run in October 2022.

Our Mission:To increase breast cancer awareness and screening, especially for Native American women. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for Native American women. It’s estimated that approximately 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in her lifetime. Our goal is to raise awareness and encourage women to screen early.

Partner and Sponsorships:
This event couldn’t be possible without the love and support from our local partners. We encourage local business and Tribal organizations to partner with us to further elevate the voice of our survivors and increase awareness for this important cause.

Although we are not a non-profit, Wilton Rancheria is a Federally Recognized Indian Tribe, and Section 7871 of the Internal Revenue Code provides that Indian Tribal Governments are treated as states for the purposes of determining the deductibility of charitable contributions and gifts under IRC section 170.
