20th Annual Running Wild 4 Hope 5k Run / Walk to Fight Cancer

Mar 20, 2016


Dear Athletes and Friends,

We have been so blessed at Klein and Clark Sports to do what we love to do for the past 30 years. In addition to providing you with quality events since 1985, we are most proud of the tremendous impact we have made in our community through charity fund raising. Our dearest fundraising endeavor came through our Women Running Wild 5k run/walk in which we have raised nearly 1 million dollars for breast cancer over the past 15 years. We have you to thank for the amazing support you have given over the years.

Our relationship with the City of Hope and the outstanding work they continue to do in finding a cure for all types of cancers has been a great one. We decided we could help them even more by giving our Women Running Wild 5k event to them to manage. Debbie Long and her team at City of Hope can now concentrate on raising even more funds in the fight against cancer. The event will still be run in memory of my sister Jody Klein who lost her battle with breast cancer, but will now have a slightly new name, Running Wild 4 Hope. Klein and Clark Sports will continue to help produce and support the event with the same quality as always. We hope you will continue to support this event which will be on March 22, 2015. The best part is, 100% of the proceeds will go to City of Hope. You can register online at www.runningwild4hope.org
