Coffee Creek Correctional Facility women Race for the Cure - 10/03/14
More than $300 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation was raised by women in custody at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility when they ran in the 5K Race for the Cure on September 28 at the prison in Wilsonville.

Two volunteers ran with 60 inmates from CCCF. Women in the medium facility ran in the morning, and women in the minimum facility ran in the afternoon. To make the distance, the women needed to complete 31 laps around the exercise yard.

To participate, each inmate donated $5 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. For their donation, they received race bibs and the knowledge they are helping to further the mission of the foundation by expanding awareness of breast cancer and the advantages of early detection. The women raced for various reasons - some ran for a family or friend who is battling the disease, some ran for themselves, and some ran simply for the knowledge they are giving back to society. This is the fourth year women in custody at CCCF have participated in the race.

CCCF is a multi-custody facility in Wilsonville that houses more than 1,200 women. It provides intake and evaluation of all female and male inmates committed to state custody. CCCF delivers a range of correctional services and programs including alcohol and drug treatment, education, work opportunities, cognitive programming, and pre-release services. The minimum facility opened in 2001 and the medium facility opened in 2002. CCCF is Oregon's only women's prison.
