Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - Online Registration Now Open for BUDDY'S Race
Online registration is now open for the 2014 BUDDY’S Race Against Cancer. Be an early bird and sign up now to walk or run with us on Sunday, November 9 at World’s Fair Park.

BUDDY’S Race is a 5K race that supports the Thompson Cancer Survival Center’s Outreach Program. To date the race has raised $5 million to support cancer screenings and education for medically-underserved individuals in East Tennessee.

Online registration is available at www.buddysrace.org. Registration is $30 for adults and $15 for children (18 and under) for either the 5K or the 1 mile walk in the park. If you aren’t a walker or a runner, there is still a way for you to participate – sign up for the “afternoon nap” option to support the race from the comfort of your couch!

The fundraising goal for the 2014 Race is $475,000, with 5,000 registered participants. Funds raised through the race will provide prostate, skin, colon and cervical cancer screenings and mammography in 18 counties across our region. Sign up now and be a part of saving the lives of our friends and neighbors!

"Please join me," says race chair Melissa Edwards.  "Together we can make my husband Jason's wish to help others fighting cancer come true!"

Thompson Cancer Survival Center is committed to the belief that every person deserves a fighting chance to defeat cancer. This year, we invite you to join us, along with all our BUDDY’S Race Against Cancer sponsors and participants, in that fight. Thank you!
