LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Another successful Chelan Chase

On Oct. 20 runners and walkers of all ages took part in the Chelan Chase, an annual breast cancer awareness fundraiser organized by Soroptimist International of Chelan.

We are proud to say that this year's race once again had a record amount of runners for the 3rd straight year.

It takes a community to stage successful events and the Chelan Chase is no different. The preparation, volunteers, sponsors, partnerships and cooperation from the entities of the city of Chelan are all essential in making this race something for the area to look forward to year after year, and so it grows. We hope it will continue to do so and help the community in the fight against breast cancer.

We as the co-chairs of the Chase would like to thank the club for dedicating the time and work into this project. Without the energy and compassion of the Soroptimist members this event would not take place for the benefit of women in the valley.

Thank you to the partnerships we have with the area businesses that give portions of their October incomes to this cause without their contributions so many people would not receive the education or mammograms needed to prevent breast cancer.

Every dollar counts when it is given to the Chelan Chase. We are so grateful to the area businesses for their support monetarily or with their in-kind donations.

The many prizes and hours from area businesses and help from area volunteers did not go unnoticed. Thank you to all for helping us "Help CHASE breast cancer away forever!" Please check out our website for information about the race,

Pamela Schmidt and Tammy Koch
2012 Chelan Chase Co-Chairs
