Event details

The Sam Day 5K run is a high energy, meaningful way to participate in  the fight against childhood cancer. 
Sign up to run or walk our 5K while kids have the opportunity to run a quick 100 yard dash created just for them!  Your entry fee includes a race shirt, medal, meal and a drink.  The kids dash is an additional $10 fee. 
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and The Sam Day 5K aims to generate a hefty dose of  awareness and funding for childhood cancer research.  Sam Day Foundation (SDF) programs are centered around some of the most difficult cancers impacting young people.  Since SDF launched in 2018, more than $1.3 + million has been committed to research, and multiple projects continue to be vetted for additional funding. 
SDF is named after Sam Day.  Sam was the kind of kid people remembered, even before he was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma. He had a spirit that could energize a crowd and engage a room full of people from doctors to preschoolers. Sam lived with cancer for six years, engaging in life-giving activities in between treatments or whenever the disease was stable. Ewing Sarcoma took Sam’s life in August 2016. The world shouldn’t have to lose kids who love life the way Sam did.

We will be running on a lovely, shaded street in Beaverton, Oregon, and a pathway through the beautiful THPRD campus.  Parking will be available near the start line at Pacific Office Automation.
