Event Details

Join us for the Annual Cancer Care Run & Walk on Saturday, October 12, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. at Martens Park, 710 Lincoln Ave, Lancaster, Ohio 43130. This 5K Run and 2-mile walk will start and end at Marten's Park, featuring a separate start for each event. The race is on a flat and fast paved bike path with a course sweeper team - no one finishes last!


Make sure to register by September 15th to receive a long-sleeved race T-shirt. Packet pickup is from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. at the shelter house on the morning of the race. 


Last year, our race registration hit record numbers with more than 230 runners and walkers strong who raised more than $11,000! All event proceeds fund local patients battling cancer. The Cancer Care Fund was started by TWIG 1 in September 2007. It has inspired the community to give to local cancer patients through the FMC Foundation. Local cancer patients benefit by receiving nutritional supplements, life-saving screenings, and diagnostic testing such as mammograms and colonoscopies for patients who could not afford them. Access to treatment and support close to home is crucial for members of our community, and the Cancer Care Fund is one way to make this possible.


Can't attend? Join us virtually! Pricing for the virtual run or walk includes shipping if you meet the September 15th T-shirt cutoff date. 


Another way to support the event is by purchasing a Memorial Sign to be displayed at the start line/finisher's chute on the day of the race in honor or memory of a loved one. Memorial signs can be purchased online for $25 each. You can do this with your registration, or by itself.


We thank all of our past sponsors and the community for supporting our brave cancer patients and their family members. If you have questions, please send us an E-mail or visit us on Facebook @CancerCareRun.
