The 2014 Walk/Run for Cancer Care

Join us in June this year. 
We're excited to announce that the Seventh Annual 5K Walk-Run to benefit the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital will be held on Saturday, June 6 this year!

We've moved this inspiring, community-driven event to June to pair it with the Center for Cancer Care's National Cancer Survivors' Day event (more details to come on this wonderful event).

The Griffin 5K Walk-Run has always been a way for us to celebrate cancer survivors, give them much-needed support during their treatment and rally the Valley and surrounding communities around a common cause. We hope you'll join us on this new date and help us give strength and comfort to your friends, family members and neighbors who are overcoming cancer.
