Please join the Porterville Breakfast Rotary Club at the Annual Run for Life at Granite Hills High School. Proceeds from this event will be used to support the Roger S. Good Cancer Treatment Center at Sierra View Medical Center. With these funds, the Cancer Treatment Center is able to attend or host cancer support groups, yearly prostate screenings, a survivor's dinner, health fairs and several other community outreach projects along with the purchase of educational materials. The event recognizes and honors the lives of those who are bravely battling or have lost their fight with cancer.
This year’s event will be honoring Robert Krase, Sabra Galloway, and Maribell Gonzalez.
As the runners and walkers come in, the fun continues. Flow into an unbeatable cooldown, led by our incredible local yoga instructor Elizabeth Dieterle RYT. Then fuel up with some tasty pancakes and an array of delicious beverages provided by The Porterville Runners Club and Stafford's Chocolates.
