In its’ 8th year, The BRA Run supports Evelyn’s BFF, a charity that helps breast cancer survivors get back to their new normal while supporting counseling, reconstruction and other items that people are often not able to get covered by their insurance. Most of our grant recipients have bills going into 6 figures! This event is the biggest fundraiser for this all volunteer organization and determines how many people they can help this year.

 

Evelyn, the founder of the Evelyn's Breast Friends Forever (BFF) (a 501(c)3 non-profit public benefit charity foundation), is now 12 years cancer free and each year we have added a K to the event in her honor so we have a 5K and a 12K at the BRA Run this year.

Join us for Evelyn's party and help her help other breast cancer survivors and their families. Our event will spread awareness of breast cancer reconstruction to the community by encouraging men and women to run and walk in their BRA (Breast Reconstruction Awareness) in honor and in memory of those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. 

Start preparing now for the costume contest!

Amazing BRA Run Event!

This was a fantastic event! It was very well organized and ran well. The atmosphere and energy was upbeat and positive and overall amazing. Course was great. And I was really glad we were able to bring the pups along and that they had a dog costume contest. Only suggestion: move the dog costume contest up first since its so short and to the point, then followed by the rest of the awards ceremony. Great event! I highly recommend doing. My husband, my brother, and I will be doing it again next year!

Great casual run, needs work as a race

Running on the paths of Dockweiler Beach makes for a very beautiful and scenic course, and the organizers do well to create a positive atmosphere for a great cause. I found it an enjoyable event but currently it’s not ideal faster runners who are focused on competing and improving their times. I ran the 11K and mile markers were either misplaced or missing altogether. After the race, I contacted the organizer for a course map, and learned that the volunteers had not followed the prescribed route while instructing runners on turnarounds. Fortunately, the organizer was receptive to addressing these concerns in future races. I was also one of the age group award winners who had to wait 1-1/2 to 2 hours to collect our medals. The problem wasn't waiting for everyone to finish, it was the efficiency of the ceremony itself and there was far too much time spent simply figuring out which awards to give next. I was willing to wait around to collect it, but not receiving it until the whole event was nearly packed up was far too long.
