The 5k is a timed event and runners will be chipped. Walkers can chose from a 1-mile family friendly route, or 5k route.

Raise Funds to Support Cancer Research

When you register, you'll receive your own personal fundraising page where you can e-mail others, tell them why you are racing for cancer research and encourage them to support you and the cause. Friends and family can donate directly to you online by going here.
Individuals who raise more than $300 in online donations by September 25 will receive a special dry-fit runner shirt.
When you register as part of a team, each member of the team will have their own personal fundraising page in addition to the team page. Your page will show how much you raised as an individual and how much your team has raised totally.
All donations are tax deductible and will support pilot projects at UW Carbone Cancer Center.
