When you’re fighting to survive, you shouldn’t have to struggle to eat, pay your utilities or phone bill, or have transportation to treatment. The Alki Beach 5k raises money to provide immediate financial assistance to local women who are undergoing treatment for breast or gynecologic cancer at Swedish Cancer Institute.

Suggested Minimum Pledge: $100 per person

Although fundraising is not required, we urge you to gather donations to help local cancer patients. Last year this event raised more than $75,000 in financial aid for women with breast and gynecological cancer. This year, the need is even greater, and with your help, we're hoping to DOUBLE the proceeds from last year.  Ask ten friends to donate $10; make a $50 donation and have your employer donate; hold a garage sale and donate the proceeds, and you'll have $100 before you know it.  But don't stop there!  All donations are welcome, and the sky is the limit.  So many people in our community have experienced cancer or cared for someone with cancer that they will be grateful for the chance to help if you just ask!

​About the Route

Enjoy the sights and sounds of West Seattle via a gorgeous waterfront 5K route (that's 3.1 miles), encompassing Alki Beach and the restored Bathhouse, Alki Beach Park, Anchor Park, and stunning views of the waterfront and downtown Seattle.

About Parking

Both Alki AND Harbor Avenues will be closed to traffic starting at 8:00 am on the morning of the Event. Because parking is always challenging on a summer day at Alki Beach, please plan to carpool, take the bus, have someone drop you off, or arrive early to allow time for parking and walking to the event starting point.

Event proceeds enable Northwest Hope & Healing to provide immediate financial assistance to women who are being treated for breast or gynecologic cancer at Swedish Cancer Institute. Northwest Hope & Healing is a Seattle based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, EIN 20-0799737. Learn more on our website at nwhopeandhealing.org

Celebrate a survivor. Honor someone you’ve lost to cancer. 
Come run or walk one of the most beautiful, fast, (and flat!) routes in Seattle.
