We at WOO WHO Foundation host an urbanobstacle in the city of Cleveland (and coming soon to Columbus!!) to raise money for our non-profit foundation that supports the local breast cancer community. As you may know, one in eight women in the U.S. will develop evasive breast cancer in their lifetime. It is a widespread and random disease, striking women and men of all ages and races. It is the most prevalent cancer in the world today, with about 1.3 million people diagnosed annually. The exact cause of the disease is unknown, and at this time, there is no cure. More significantly, Ohio is 32nd in the nation in breast cancer incidence, but 4th in breast cancer mortality. These numbers are even worse in minority and under-served women.
The WOO WHO urbanobstacle's annual run takes place in early August. The urbanobstacle is an urban challenge combined with an approximately 4-6 mile run through the city of Cleveland where a single racer will encounter new obstacles about every mile to a mile and a half. These obstacles range from running through tires and crawling under police barricades to trecking the lower level of the Detroit-Superior Bridge and scaling the ramps at Progressive Field. The finish line leads directly into a party atmosphere with music and beer!
cleveland's 4th annual urbanobstacle
is in the planning phase!
We're excited about switching up the date and making 2014 the best year yet. Look for more info soon!
