This year will mark the 9th annual 5K Ely Breast Cancer Fund Benefit Walk. The last eight years have been a great success with hundred’s of participants of all ages. The walk will take place on Saturday, July 5th, beginning at Steptoe Park in East Ely. Rolling starts will begin every half hour from 6-8 a.m. to allow all walkers to begin at their convenience.

The proceeds will stay local to benefit the Ely Breast Cancer Fund, a fund designed to aid local community members in need of assistance for breast cancer treatment.
