Support Cancer Outreach Services at 2018 Subway Race Against Cancer

Mark your calendars — Sunday, Oct. 14, is the date for the 2018 Race Against Cancer presented by Subway.

The Race Against Cancer is multi-event walk and run (5K, a NEW 10K or Walk in the Park) that supports Thompson Cancer Survival Center’s Cancer Outreach services. Since its inception, the race has raised more than $7 million to support cancer care in surrounding communities. Thanks to the Race Against Cancer, thousands of our region’s medically underserved citizens receive potentially life-saving cancer screenings and education each year. Through prevention, early detection and education, we are saving lives. You can make a difference by participating in this fun event!

Can’t make it to the race on Oct. 14 or don’t like to walk or run? Then register for the Afternoon Nap race option. You will receive a race t-shirt and you can support Thompson just like the race participants.
