Register Today – Colors of Cancer

Raising money to fight cancerThe Colors of Cancer 5K Run/Walk is a community-wide event that takes place in Huntington, West Virginia for the opportunity to promote awareness, offer support and raise funds to beat cancer. In our lifetime one in three people we come into contact with will be diagnosed with cancer, and the other two people we meet will know someone who has or has had cancer. In recent years we have been showing our support for victims of cancer and our loved ones by wearing different colored ribbons that represent a particular cancer. Even though the types of cancer may vary from one person to the next, we are all fighting the same battle together. You are invited to wear any and all of the colors of cancer (the more colorful, the better) to the event to symbolize our unity of purpose and to celebrate survivors.  All proceeds from the race will be used to support patients receiving care at the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center. Any donations and funds may be directed to benefit patients receiving care for specific cancers by using the following information provided. We thank you for gathering your family and friends and joining us and displaying the colors of cancer.
