HEAVEN CAN WAIT and Assistance League of Bend
The Heaven Can Wait 5K walk/run sponsored by St. Charles Medical Center has been held annually since 2000 on National Cancer Survivor’s Day, the first Sunday in June. This race is one of the largest in Central Oregon, attracting thousands of participants. The event benefits Sarah’s Project, which provides support services for breast cancer patients.
In 2014 Assistance League of Bend was invited to be a participating vendor by offering our free chemo hats. Our long term Hats, Hats, Hats program has supplied thousands of hats to St. Charles and Bend Memorial Clinic infusion centers. In 2017 we began to offer Knitted Knockers (soft knitted and crocheted breast prosthetics) at Heaven Can Wait, St. Charles, and Bend Memorial Clinic. We have also happily provided knockers to many individuals throughout Central Oregon after they contacted Assistance League of Bend on their own.
