Run Against Cancer – April 20

Ever at the forefront of the fight against cancer, the country’s premier tertiary cancer center, ST. LUKE’S MEDICAL CENTER, partners with the St. Luke’s Cancer Institute’s CORRIDOR OF HOPE, INC., to help spread cancer awareness and bring hope to cancer patients and their families.

On 20 April 2013, the St. Luke’s Cancer Institute’s Corridor of Hope, in collaboration with ally medical practitioners, corporate partners, cancer support groups, and cancer patients and families, leads the race to life through RUN AGAINST CANCER, a charity run for the benefit of indigent cancer patients.

Cancer patients’ healing journey is often long and arduous. We can help bridge the gap between indigent cancer patients and their needed treatment if we’d altogether unleash the power of our feet. With our help, they just might be 3K, 5K, or 10K away from their recovery.

Support the race to life. Run against cancer.
