The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, in partnership with the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara, will again host Barbara Ireland Walk & Run for Breast Cancer to encourage community fund raising and provide cancer patients in the community with events to celebrate life.
I have participated in the event and am always impressed with the caring and dedicated spirit of everyone involved. Barbara & John Ireland and their lovely family are charming hosts, and dedicated to raising funds for cancer research.

The entry fee to the event includes one drink ticket, appetizers and a raffle ticket for a great prize!

17th Walk and Run
Barbara Ireland, her husband, John, and daughters welcome everyone to join them on Saturday, March 11th for the 17th anniversary of the Barbara Ireland Walk and Run for Breast Cancer. This incredible experience provides participants an opportunity to invest in their own personal health, while supporting breast cancer programs in our local community. Remember a woman has a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer during her lifetime.
