COPAFamily 5K Run/Walk– In 2014, Tour des Chutes added a 5k non-competitive fun run/walk, sponsored by Central Oregon Pediatric Associates (COPA), supported by The Kralj Family, to honor Bend runner, Johanna Olson, who died of cancer in 2013 at age 34. Designed by Bend’s own Dave Thomason (“Super Dave”), this route features a loop through the Northwest Crossing neighborhood.
The Run/Walk directly benefits Pediatric Foundation, a Central Oregon non-profit that provides financial support to families who have a child with cancer and must travel out of the area to receive life saving treatments. We thank the family and friends of Johanna who allowed Tour des Chutes to create this event in her honor.
SAFETY NOTE: Strollers and children of all ages are welcome. Please leave your furry loved ones at home. Cycling, Running, Kids and Dogs don’t mix well at this active, complex event. We know you’ll understand!
