Oatlands Cherry Blossom 5K a Great Success

The Clouds Parted: Oatlands Cherry Blossom 5K Was A Great Success

Oatlands-Event-winners-smA beautiful sunny Sunday, April 23d, sandwiched between two days of heavy rain, allowed the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation to successfully conduct its 11th year of fundraising for local women’s fight against breast cancer and the Foundation’s first Spring 5K Walk, Run, and Pooch Prance.

“God granted us great weather for the eleventh year”, said Cherry Blossom founder, James Atkins, “but Saturday, Chair Marcy Harris and I were worried that the heavy rain and cold temps would deter participants.”

Thousands of dollars were raised for Cherry Blossom to donate to local women.
