Lasting memories


Gathering at the Redmond High School track, Heaven Can Wait 5K draws hundreds together with a shared mission to raise 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.

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 a women's event that would promote early detection of cancer and encourage a healthy active lifestyle.


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.
* Brings the community together in a celebration of life.
