We Fight For Bubba 5K
August 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Fifth Annual We Fight For Bubba 5K will take place August 18, 2018 at 9am. Race will begin and finish at the Wasco Old Towne Pub & Eatery located at 40W290 Lafox Road, St. Charles, IL 60175. Please be at the Pub by 8:30am.
Donations raised from this event will specifically fund breast cancer research, early detection, treatment and prevention. Funds raised this year will be donated to the Kelly Cares Foundation and The ChadTough Foundation. We have helped many families with either a parent or a child fighting to survive. The financial relief we provide gives the family time to focus on what’s important and that is winning their battle.
Bubba’s passion for Notre Dame and our family’s passion to find a cure for breast cancer, led us to choose the Kelly Cares Foundation as one of the 2018 beneficiaries of this year’s event proceeds. Notre Dame Head Football Coach, Brian Kelly and his wife Paqui, a two-time breast cancer survivor, have made it their foundation’s mission to support Community, Education, and Health initiatives across the country and globally. Donations raised from this event will specifically fund breast cancer research and education. See who they contribute to.

“The reason I’m still living is because I was proactive,” Paqui says. “It’s imperative that you realize a serious illness can impact you at any time, but it doesn’t have to defeat you if you are taking the right steps and monitoring your health.”
