Why support the Race Against Cancer:

The 27th annual Thompson Cancer Survival Center’s Race Against Cancer will be here before we know it. The race will be held on Sunday, November 8th at the World’s Fair Park with a race start time of 3:00 PM. Our race committee and the Thompson Cancer Survival Center staff invite you to be a part of this important effort. The 2020 goal is to raise $400,000 to provide funding for life-saving cancer outreach services throughout East Tennessee.
The race began with a group of people wanting to lead the fight against cancer right here in East Tennessee. Since 1993, this event has raised over $7.4 million to provide cancer screenings and education to thousands of medically underserved individuals throughout our community. All of the funds raised by the race stay right here in East Tennessee. The event serves to unite all of us in the fight against cancer, as we continue to remember those lost to the disease and celebrate the thousands who are cancer survivors.
“This Race Against Cancer is personal for me. The first year I designed the race course and ran in honor of my mom who died of cancer. In 2009, I battled melanoma and got to wear a cancer survivor shirt for the first time. Seeing the funds stay right here in East Tennessee is so important to me. I’ve not missed a year!” - Missy Kane, 2018 race chair and cancer survivor
