In 2007 Trisha Swanson began volunteering for Oregon Women's Prison Ministry, a Christian organization that provides weekly church services for the ladies at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF).  A few of the inmates found out she was a runner and expressed interest in running, so in 2011 Trisha approached the CCCF administration about putting on a run event/race at the prison and Race for the Cure Inside was created.  In spring 2014 the CCCF administration asked Trisha if she would be interested in creating a run program for the inmates.  The run program has since grown to include three training groups and two facility wide races.
