Everyone medals at Run to Fight Children’s Cancer! Finisher medals are handed out at the conclusion of both races by our wonderful volunteers. Be sure you receive yours at the finish line.

For the top three male and female finishers in each age category, special award medals will be available and can be picked up at the Medals Table by the timing results display. Results are posted approximately one hour after the start of each run.

The 2020 Run to Fight Medal is designed by childhood cancer survivor, Jeff Luttrell. Diagnosed with cancer at the age of 5 years, Jeff is a 26 year survivor and a talented graphic designer.

Mission & History

Run to Fight Children’s Cancer is the largest race in Arizona dedicated solely to pediatric cancer. Now in its tenth year, the race unites the community in building awareness of childhood cancer and raising much-needed funds for research, treatments, patient education and a host of support services for families battling the disease. All proceeds from the race stay in our community and benefit Arizona children fighting cancer.

Our History
Grand Canyon University Foundation hosted the inaugural Run to Fight Children’s Cancer – with its 10K run, 5K run/walk and quarter-mile Children’s Survivors Walk – in 2011. Since then, the race has become a signature event in Arizona, attracting thousands of participants and topping the half-million-dollar mark in funds raised for lifesaving treatments at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, along with financial, education and healthy living programs provided to families by Children’s Cancer Network.

In 2018, the Grand Canyon University Foundation passed the baton to Children’s Cancer Network, who assumed operations of the event. Together with runners, sponsors, volunteers and our very own cancer-fighting superheroes, Run to Fight Children’s Cancer is a voice for young cancer survivors and a beacon of hope for families across the state.
