Cancer touches new lives every day. It can break hearts, challenge one’s endurance, crush dreams and ravage bodies. But, it also can strengthen faith, unite families, refocus energies and change perspectives.
The Jubilee Run For Cancer is a time to celebrate victories over this dreaded disease and honor those who valiantly ran the race. Through the 8K Run, 1-Mile Walk, Wellness Expo, Kids Area and other activities, the event increases awareness about the impact of cancer while raising money for research and prevention with the American Cancer Society.
At its core, this event is a way for us to CELEBRATE LIFE — those who were victorious in their battles, and those whose lives ended too soon. To ensure we accomplish our mission, we changed the format of one of our events from the 2-Mile Walk/Run to a 1-Mile Honor/Memory Walk. From walking with you to walking for others, the Honor/Memory Walk demonstrates we’re all united in this fight to find a cure. BONUS: 8K participants are welcome to join the 1-Mile Honor/Memory Walk at no additional cost, and all survivors in attendance will be recognized.
Join our event as an individual, or gather friends & family and create a team! Fundraising is available for you or your team at Active.com. We will honor the Fastest Cancer Survivor (Male & Female), Longest Cancer Survivor (Male & Female), Top Individual Fundraiser, Top Fundraising Team, the Fastest Team (5 member minimum; averaged time) and the Largest Team (5 member minimum) at the awards ceremony post-race — among other race-specific awards!
There's a lot of history surrounding the Jubilee Run, which you can read about on the "About Jubilee: Past & Present" link. Be sure to check out the other pages for route info and images; registration details; volunteer and sponsorship opportunity guidelines; fundraising info and more.
We look forward to seeing you Saturday, May 16!
