Last year we were 250 strong and raised over $40,000, making us the #1 fundraising team of the 2012 Race. Be a part of history to help end breast cancer FOREVER!
Over 75% of the money we raise will STAY in Oregon/SW Washington to provide the necessary resources for the women and men in our community. The remaining donations fund breast cancer research across the country, including programs at our LOCAL hospitals!
The Top 5 Team Janine Fundraisers will receive a pair of shoes from New Balance at Bridgeport Village.
The Top Fundraiser receives a $500 gift certifcate from La-Z-Boy!
And now K103 Morning Show Breakfast Flake, Bruce Murdock says he'll shave his head bald in honor of those who have gone through chemo, if Team Janine meets their fundraising goal of $40k by the Race on Sunday. Help us reach our goal and see Bruce bald!

MUSIC FOR THE HEART works to eliminate cardiovascular disease by supporting scientific research. We raise money by producing world-class musical concerts and we educate the public through our Focus on Science events. We recognize that music is an efficient, effective means for engaging people and stimulating thought and, as such, a sustainable basis for creating positive impact. We have donated over $100,000 to the OHSU Heart Research Center since inception in 2005.
