Mission Statement

The Mission of Grand Canyon University's Run to Fight Children's Cancer is to create awareness in the community for childhood cancer while also providing support to the families and children affected by the disease. Proceeds from the race will directly benefit nonprofit organizations that help fight childhood cancer.

Description

The Run to Fight Children’s Cancer is an annual 10K and 5K run that raises money to support Arizona children and families dealing with childhood cancer. The event is held every March on the Grand Canyon University campus in Phoenix and features a special quarter-mile Cancer Survivors’ Walk.

Since 2011, the Run to Fight Children’s Cancer has raised more than $70,000 for local nonprofit organizations; this year, proceeds will benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Cancer Network.

We expect the run on March 7, 2015 to be our largest to date and will rely heavily on more than 200 volunteers to assist with dozens of different tasks, from event set-up and registration to food and water distribution.
