Join us for our 2018 Unite for HER 5K Run, 2K Walk, and Kids’ Dash in West Chester! Last September, we had a record turnout of over 975 people to honor women affected by breast cancer. This year, we want to crush that number as we unite the community to run by HER side in support of those affected by breast cancer.

Because of the incredible outpouring of compassion and support within our community, we ask that runners/walkers will please break tradition (and superstitions) and wear their pink event shirts on race day as a show of unity and support for our women.
