Runner's Almanac Day 47, WeSpark

Today marks the first day of National Breast Cancer Awareness month. I have not been able to find runs focused on raising funds towards breast cancer research in the LA area for this month. There is one in November, the inaugural 10K/5K for WeSpark, an organzation in Sherman Oaks created by the late actress Wendie Jo Sperker (Bossom Buddies fame) who passed away from breast cancer. The organization provides support services for those living with cancer. Of course, you can also use any race as a reason to raise money for breast cancer research.

Here's the info:
