Description

The 6th Annual Inspired by Darrell Sublett 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, October 14th, 2017, at 8:00 A.M. in the Historic Kansas City Jazz District. Runners as well as Walkers are encouraged to register in support of the fight against Triple Negative Breast Cancer.

The Inspired by Darrell 5K Run/Walk is an event held by Team Inspired to honor the memory and warrior spirit of the late Ms. Darrell Sublett.  Our mission is to educate the public about Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) especially African American, Latina and young women who this subtype of breast cancer most commonly affects.

It is now commonly understood that breast cancer is not one form of cancer, but many different “subtypes” of cancer. These subtypes of breast cancer are generally diagnosed based upon the presence, or lack of, three “receptors” known to fuel most breast cancers: estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). The most successful treatments for breast cancer target these receptors.

Unfortunately, none of these receptors are found in women with triple negative breast cancer. In other words, a triple negative breast cancer diagnosis means that the offending tumor is estrogen receptor-negative, progesterone receptor-negative and HER2-negative, thus giving rise to the name “triple negative breast cancer.” On a positive note, this type of breast cancer is typically responsive to chemotherapy. Because of its triple negative status, however, triple negative tumors generally do not respond to receptor targeted treatments. Depending on the stage of its diagnosis, triple negative breast cancer can be particularly aggressive, and more likely to recur than other subtypes of breast cancer.

This year’s race categories include Men/Women 5K Run and 1K Kids Run.  All Walkers are Welcome! 

T-shirts may be purchased for an additional $15.00 during registration up to 2 weeks prior to race day
