The California High School cheer teams firsthand have seen their coach, Becca Rioux battle breast cancer over the past years and undergo radiation, chemo and hair loss. They've also successfully raised more than $3,000 for Avon Walk for Breast Cancer at a cut-a-thon this past August.
This dedicated group of girls continues to work to bring awareness of this devastating disease. In recognition of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, they will be hosting a special fitness cardio class this Sunday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Cal High School commons, 9870 Broadmoor Drive in San Ramon.
Come join instructors from UJAM Fitness, the cheer teams and Becca's Breast Friends in a 90-minute fun exercise program and help spread awareness about breast cancer. A donation of $10 per person benefits the Avon Foundation for Women which is working hard to make sure all women have the resources to get the help and treatment they need to battle this disease, to fund research that is currently finding new ways to diagnose the disease and new treatments.
Come and meet Rioux and hear her story and enjoy a fun workout. Please be prepared to sign a brief waiver. If you are under 18, please bring a parent/guardian for signature or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the waiver and bring it with you to Sunday's event. Becca's team of walkers in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer this year raised more than $12,000 for the Avon Foundation for Women which is funded by the Avon Walk.
CALLING ALL local Oregon Duck fans, the University of Oregon Parent Family Association and Alumni Association invite you to a Watch Party for the Oregon-versus-UCLA football game Saturday at Jack's Brewing Company, 2410 San Ramon Valley Blvd. Game time is 4 p.m. Owner Kurt Steadman welcomes all Duck and football fans to enjoy the games.
More than 2,000 Bay Area students head to Eugene, Ore., to attend the University of Oregon, according to the school's Office of Admissions. There will be a no-host bar and food, a raffle for anyone wearing Duck gear and lots of spirit to watch the undefeated Pac 12 teams face off. RSVP to EastBayPFADucks@gmail.com and join the fun.
A HALLOWEEN PHOTO shoot for pets, families and kids is being offered by the San Ramon based Paws in Need this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the side yard at the historic Kottinger Barn at 200 Ray St. between Main and First Streets in downtown Pleasanton.
Proceeds will benefit the nonprofit group Paws In Need, which provides funding assistance to urgent one-time medical needs for sick or injured animals in our communities when pet owners are unable to pay due to financial hardship. This prevents unnecessary euthanasia. The group also provides certificates to help offset the cost of spaying and neutering community pets. Bring your pet in costume or bring the kids and the entire family dressed up in costume.
The professional photographs will be taken by Sierra Photography and are $15 each. Face painting for children by Limelight Faces is $4 per child. The first 100 photographed will receive a jack-o-lantern folder frame for their photo. Please have all dogs on leashes and other pets in carriers. For more information, contact Sue Mead at 925-560-0806 or email@example.com. Visit www.Paw-In-Need.org to learn more about this organization.
