The Celebrate Life Story

Our simple purpose is to offer assistance and enhance the lives of our family, friends, and neighbors affected by cancer in Sandpoint and its surrounding communities.

CELEBRATE LIFE FUN RUN/WALK began in 2004, the vision of a courageous and beautiful young woman, Jenny Meyer, who was diagnosed at age 26 with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Jenny’s valiant fight inspired her sister, Julie Walkington, to make a difference for not only Jenny, but for others in this community with a cancer diagnosis.

This event is organized
and implemented solely
by volunteers!

Having coped with the bureaucracies and rigors of cancer treatment, Jenny envisioned simple gestures with no strings attached. She knew that these acts of kindness and compassion would be welcomed and appreciated by those enduring treatment and by their loved ones facing the journey with them. Julie sought to make Jenny’s vision become a reality. Celebrate Life was born.

Though Jenny lost her fight with cancer in 2008, her simple vision and kind spirit live on through Celebrate Life and continue to serve those affected by cancer in Sandpoint and its surrounding communities. Because of an ever increasing need for support, our fundraising goal has increased in response. Our Fun Run/Walk in August is our sole fundraiser.
