Whether you're a walker or a runner, team up with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) to advance lifesaving cancer research.

Members of the AACR Runners for Research team participate in races around the country to support the AACR and our more than 40,000 members who lead the effort to prevent and cure cancer. This year our signature 5K will be held in Chicago, IL, as 20,000 cancer scientists, survivors, advocates, and others gather April 14 - 18 for the AACR Annual Meeting 2018 to discuss the latest developments in the fight against cancer.

Join the fun and support an important cause at the AACR Runners for Research 5K Run/Walk!

Finding Cures Challenge: To celebrate the AACR’s 110 years serving the cancer research community, participate in the Finding Cures Challenge by raising $110, and you’ll receive a Finding Cures medal.
