ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The Alki Beach Walk/Run 5K, which will benefit the Northwest Hope and Healing Foundation and women battling breast cancer, is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 27 this year and organizer's hope to raise more than $60,000.

This is the seventh walk/run benefit for Northwest Hope and Healing, said Erin Mooney, a spokesperson for the event.

This year's waterfront 3.1-mile route will take runners and walkers from the Statue of Liberty at Alki Beach Park and the historic Bathhouse, along the waterfront to Anchor Park. It is a U.S.A. Track and Field certified and sanctioned course, according to organizers, and timing services provided by Rogue Multi-Sport.

"Our prior events included a half marathon (13.1 miles) based out of Lincoln Park, but we have found the shorter distance to be more attractive to runners in the area," said Shari Sewell, the director of Northwest Hope and Healing Foundation. "The Alki Beach 5k Walk/Run is a family friendly event in a gorgeous setting along Alki Beach."
