When does online registration close?
There are a lot of different ways you can participate in the race. You can register as an individual, create or join a team to participate in the race with your friends and family or you can register for the afternoon nap if you don't like to walk but still want to participate. Plus we're always in need of great volunteers to help with the race.

Questions About Volunteering
Contact Nicole Taylor, Special Events Manager at Office: 865-531-5205 or email RaceAgainstCancer@covhlth.com with subject heading “Volunteer Information”.
Why should you volunteer?
People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. It's also a great way to earn service hours for students. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it both challenging and rewarding.
Our race team captains and their team members are a powerful force in the fight against cancer.
