Cancer touches so many lives – on July 4, join us in the fight against it!
The annual C.A.T. Walk & Fun Run is dedicated to raising money for Tuality Healthcare's local cancer awareness and treatment programs. This Independence Day tradition is a prelude to the famous Hillsboro Rotary parade, and includes three events—a timed 5K walk and run, Kids' Dash, and health fair.
By participating in this family-friendly 5K walk and run, you're helping to make a significant difference in the lives of the cancer patients we care for by allowing us to provide education programs, medical equipment, transportation assistance, and patient comfort necessities at our leading-edge cancer treatment facilities, right here in Hillsboro.
