Run to Fight Children’s Cancer: 10K run, 5K run/walk and Cancer Hero Walk

WHO:   Run to Fight Children’s Cancer is an event to both celebrate survivorship and honor those who have lost their battle.  We welcome virtual participants of all ages and all levels including elite runners, joggers, and walkers.  All are invited to virtually cheer on our amazing superheores and their families participating in the Cancer Hero Walk.


All registered participants of CCN’s Run to Fight Children’s Cancer 2020 will run, walk, jog (or virtually participate from the couch) in a 10K or 5K on a course of your choice, at a time you choose from Sunday, October 11th through Sunday, October 25th.  You may choose to complete this goal alone, as a small group or a team with social distancing!  All we ask is that you include us along the way, virtually, through photos, videos, stories, and quotes. Look for the details of how to submit your photos, videos, stories, and quotes shortly.  There will be prizes and recognition for the best start line, best finish line, most creative course, most enthusiastic team, most passionate participant, and more!
