7B Women Host Boobs ‘n Beer 5K Fun Run, Oktoberfest

By Reader Staff

It’s an event you won’t want to miss. The Third Annual Boobs ‘n Beer 5K Fun Run and Oktoberfest is not only a great time but a fundraiser for two local organizations that assist those in our community fighting cancer—Celebrate Life and Community Cancer Services.

Pictured from the 2017 event are owners of the Cedar Day Spa and friends, who again this year are sponsoring the Third Annual Boobs ‘n Beer Fun Run & Oktoberfest. To ensure a sponsor’s name on the shirt, sponsorships must be received by September 1.

The event, hosted by 7B Women and co-sponsored again this year by MickDuff’s Brewing Co., combines a 5K on the Sand Creek Trail followed by a family-friendly Oktoberfest at MickDuff’s Beer Hall on Sunday, Sept. 30, rain or shine at 11 a.m. 

The Oktoberfest celebration is complete with kids’ activities, including face painting and a bounce house, and 20 Grand, a 10-piece band from Whitefish, Mont.. And an Oktoberfest would not be complete without beer. For those 21 and older, race registration will include one free beer at MickDuff’s, and a portion of all other beer sold that day will go to the two beneficiary organizations.

“Last year we raised $17,500, and we were thrilled to be able to help both Community Cancer Services and Celebrate Life in their mission to help those affected by cancer in the community,” said 7B Women board member and event chair Alice Sloane.

The fun run begins at the parking lot at City Beach at 11 a.m. Costumes are highly encouraged. “The creativity in the past when it comes to costumes has always been a highlight!” said Alice, who adds that people dress to celebrate breast cancer awareness month by sporting head-to-toe pink or embrace the Oktoberfest theme and break out the lederhosen.

In addition to music, beer and kids’ activities, there will be food available as well.

There are still sponsorship spots available, but to ensure a sponsor’s name and/or logo on the event shirt, sponsorships must be received by Sept. 1.

Online registration closes Friday, Sept. 28, at 5 p.m. Those wishing to register after that time may register in person on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 3-6 p.m. at MickDuff’s Beer Hall or on Sunday, Sept. 30, from 9-10:30 a.m. at Sandpoint City Beach.
