THANK YOU to our amazing community!

Our hearts are filled with gratitude for everyone who helped make our first ever Virtual Walk & Run a HUGE success. Thanks to your support, we have raised over $118,000 so far! We’ll continue to collect donations and award prizes through the end of the month. 

We couldn't have done it without our fundraisers, corporate sponsors, donors, entertainers, staff, board, photo & video contributors, and everyone who helped spread the word (through signs, media, Facebook & more).

Cancer hasn’t stopped and neither have we.  CRC staff and volunteers continue to provide support services to those affected by cancer in our community.  We’ve had to learn how to do things a little differently.  And this includes our signature Walk & Run - which is being held virtually on the fourth of July weekend.  We know this is much earlier than our usual October date, but want to encourage folks to get active..........and we could all use a lift in spirits! 


Here’s how it works:
  1. Register online as you normally would 
  2. Create a personal fundraising page. Then, start your own team or join an established one
  3. Encourage family, friends, and others to join you or your team, or to donate
  4. Fundraise, fundraise, fundraise! Win prizes!
  5. Walk or run during the July 4th weekend. Think of this as motivation to get active, indoors or outside
  6. Enjoy  Virtual Zumba & Musical entertainment
What’s new (besides going virtual):
  1. A free event bandanna great for using as a facemask, head scarf, or dog collar, etc.
  2. A colorful event bib and/or tribute sign honoring a loved one. Pin it to your shirt while walking or running
  3. Post pictures and/or videos of yourself using hashtag #CRCWalkRun2020
  4. Photo Contest
  5. Download our social media toolkit

The Cancer Resource Center is a local, independent non-profit agency. We make life a little easier for people whose lives are affected by cancer. All of our services are provided free of charge and your donation helps ensure that we continue to do this. 

Donations fund nearly 1/3rd of our agency’s operations in a normal year; in an extraordinary year like this one, your generosity is critical for our continuation of services. When you participate and raise money for CRC, you're doing your part to help our community. Your support truly makes a difference in making sure that no one faces cancer alone.
