What is the Barbara Ireland Walk and Run for Breast Cancer?
Only the best event ever! This year will mark the Ireland Walk and Run's 17th anniversary. The events raise awareness about breast cancer and breast cancer programs and services available at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara.
Where does the money go?
The money doesn’t go anywhere. It all stays right here in Santa Barbara at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara with Sansum Clinic. Funds are used to support the genetic counseling program, breast cancer patient navigation and research - programs which could save your life or the life of a loved one. Last year more than 350 participants raised more than $60,000. Great job!
Why participate in the Barbara Ireland Walk and Run for Breast Cancer?
Why not? This fun, family-friendly event helps raise money and awareness for an extraordinary cause – breast cancer. Did you know that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime? Do your part now and join us for the Ireland Walk and Run for Breast Cancer.
If some of my team members register using the paper form, will they show up on my team page?
Yes, all participants will appear online.
How many people are needed to form a team?
It only takes five people to form a team. Feel free to have as large a group as you like. Last year the largest team had 26 members.
What is expected of me if I register as a team captain?
It is all up to you. We would hope that as your team’s captain you would set a fundraising goal, encourage your team to meet that goal and help us spread the word that all funds raised will stay within our community.
Can my team be comprised of walkers and runners?
Of course! The most important part is the same for every participant – you all are doing your part to take steps to support breast cancer patients!
May I register multiple people with one transaction?
Yes, you can!
Where can I park the morning of the Walk/Race?
There is parking along Cabrillo Blvd as well as several waterfront lots that are close to the start of the course.
Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, NO. We love dogs (and cats!) just as much as the next person, but they need to be left at home for the event.
Can I walk/run with a jogging stroller?
Yes, jogging strollers are welcomed. We feel it’s never too early to introduce your little one to fundraising for a good cause.
Are children required to pay the registration fee?
Children must register just like an adult, but the fee is only $20 regardless of when they register.
