The American Cancer Society DetermiNation Program is first and foremost a fundraising program. It is set up to help individuals do the unthinkable, achieve what seems impossible, and change the course of cancer forever. With access to professional training, an unparalleled community of support, and inspiration every step of the way, the American Cancer Society will helps runners finish a half-marathon, marathon, or triathlon.
