Cancer knows no bounds of gender, age, or race - it impacts everyone.  In 2021, it's estimated that nearly 1.9 million new people will be diagnosed with cancer and 608,570 patients will die in the United States alone because of this disease. 

We are proud to present this Virtual 5k as an opportunity to stay active and do good at a safe distance. Proceeds from this event will support cancer research through the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation and the Jackson Laboratory Cancer Center

Support a Participant by Donating

A portion of the net proceeds from this event will stay local and support our healthcare partners at the Jackson Laboratory Cancer Center in Bar Harbor, Maine.  

The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) is an independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit biomedical research institution founded in 1929 in Bar Harbor, Maine. Their mission is to discover precise genomic solutions for disease and empower the global biomedical community in the shared quest to improve human health.

JAX has had a National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center since 1983 and is one of only seven institutes in the United States that has received this designation for its contributions to basic cancer research.
