Jeanne Gushwa was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. She has been participating in 5k fundraisers for cancer since 2002. She and DJ Strong, another survivor, founded High Beams in 2006, completing their first three-day, 60-mile Komen event in San Diego in November 2006.

Gushwa has been participating in the event every year since then, and raising a minimum of $2,300 each year. She has 20 members of her team that support her and participate with her.
