Brambleton Ribbon Run set for April 5
Hosted by the Step Sisters, the race attracts approximately 2,000 runners and walkers. Proceeds will directly benefit area breast cancer patients.
The Step Sisters were founded in 2005 to raise awareness and help improve the quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer. The Ribbon Run is one of their signature events of the year.
Recently, the Step Sisters announced a partnership with Inova Loudoun Hospital, as well as other area organizations, to help local breast cancer patients with services such as transportation, fresh food delivery, house cleaning and more.
A new feature at the race this year will be the addition of an educational expo, featuring local cancer-related vendors and organizations, called “Sharon’s Showcase,” in memory of a Step Sister who lost her battle to breast cancer in December.
“Sharon Iglesias was known for her passion about raising awareness and educating people about what resources are available to help while going through treatment,” said Aimee Taylor, a spokesperson for the Step Sisters.
