COPA Family 5K Run/Walk– In 2014, Tour des Chutes added a 5k non-competitive fun run/walk through the NW Crossing neighborhood, followed by a family-friendly pancake breakfast. Sponsored by Central Oregon Pediatric Associates (COPA) and supported by The Kralj Family, the event honors Bend runner Johanna Olson, who died of cancer in 2013 at age 34.
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.
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!
