Hafer Awareness race turns into family affair

By Katy Nesbitt

The Observer

The Amy Hafer Race for Awareness was a family affair for Chris Stauffer, Brandon Miller, and Laura Miller.

Chris Stauffer, a senior at Eastern Oregon University, took first in the men’s 5k with a time of 21:28. His sister, Laura (Stauffer) Miller won the women’s 10k in 49:54 and her husband, Brandon Miller took first in the men’s 10k in 39:53.

Jean Schulz, a regular victor at many of the local road runs, took first in the women’s 5k with a time of 24:29.

The one-mile boy’s race was won by Clayne Miller in a time of 6:31 and Andy Gebhardt was close behind finishing in 6:36. For the girls, Carsyn Miller came in at 7:47.

The race, sponsored by the Wallowa Health Care District Foundation, is in honor of Amy Hafer, a 1989 graduate of Wallowa High School, who died of breast cancer in 2007. The focus of the event is to promote risk reduction of breast and other cancers through healthy lifestyle choices and regular cancer screenings like mammograms and colonoscopies.

The race is made possible by a grant from the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Oregon and Southwest Washington affiliate office.

Soroptimist of Wallowa County and Chief Joseph Days Rodeo each donate money towards free mammograms for low income women in the county.
