Become a sponsor for our Fifth Annual Sweatin for Sarah 5K Charity Run to be held Saturday October 18, 2014 at 9 a.m. at Sugarhouse Park in Salt Lake City.

To contribute to the fight against cancer and to continue Sarah’s legacy, we continue running in Sarah’s honor. This year’s proceeds will benefit two beautiful young women… Amanda Catano Dorais and young mother, Tiffiney Dickerson in their fight against Colon cancer. Last year hundreds of people gathered together on a beautiful August morning to share their incredible support for Sarah’s memory and the fight against cancer.  It was a special day for everyone in attendance. We look forward to this year with our goal to have more than 500 runners.

The primary source for paying the costs of the race comes from sponsors and donors, such as yourself. We depend on donations to pay for the cost of the race. One hundred percent of the registration fees go to the recipients to help pay their medical bills and other financial responsibilities.



Sweatin’ for Sarah was originally started to help Sarah Hays Shurtz pay her bills after she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, in June 2010. Running was a passion of Sarah’s, & when she was diagnosed with cancer and lost her ability to run, this was devastating. Sarah looked forward to the race every year and it helped lift her spirits. Sadly, Sarah lost her battle to cancer November 1, 2011. She loved the Sweatin for Sarah race and hoped it would help her legacy live on. This year we are running in Sarah’s honor and we are raising funds for Amanda Catano Dorais and Tiffiney Dickerson.

    Good luck in this important endeavor. We have known Chanda since she was in her teens when she came to Georgia to be a nanny for the summer. We love the Ivie family as if they were our own. We hope this race helps take away some of the financial stresses that Chanda’s illness has caused everyone. We wish we could be there to cheer everyone on. Much love to the Ivies – Cathy and Robert Sinsheimer
