Many patients with cancer have limited resources and face challenges in getting the treatment they need. Funds raised from this Virtual 5 K will go directly to the American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society provides cancer patients with the following resources:
• Supporting patients with free lodging near hospitals, free rides to treatment, and a 24/7 cancer helpline.
• Providing information, tools and services to help people cope with the challenges and questions that come with a cancer diagnosis.
• Making breakthroughs in research and urging lawmakers to improve access to care.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many fundraising activities have been canceled. My goal with this Virtual 5K is to raise awareness on the needs of cancer patients and to come together as a community to help support them!
