BRIGHT 2020 was a challenge in many ways, given the new realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. But breast cancer didn’t stop for COVID and neither did the BRIGHT Run – together we raised a whopping $333,000+ for local breast cancer research!

Despite the challenges of going virtual for the first time in 13 years, the BRIGHT Run family made the pivot and our fundraising success is the proof. Each year, we recognize top fundraisers in a range of categories, so take a look.
