The Fight Back 5K and Fun Run is back! Join us as walkers, runners, and volunteers come together in our local community to honor cancer survivors, raise awareness about reducing cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease. Your participation allows the American Cancer Society to help people facing cancer today and find cures to end the disease tomorrow. Through sponsorship, and the fundraising efforts of our participants, we will finish the fight against cancer.
We will have food, fun, and packet pick-up on August 10 from 5-7 PM at the American Cancer Society Office. The 5K starts at 7 PM and 1-mile Fun Run starts at 7:30 PM. Both races wind through the Pinnacle Office Park and Razorback Greenway trail. Cancer survivors and caregivers have access to the Survivors Tent where they can meet fellow survivors and caregivers, share stories, and participate in fun activities. Survivors unable to participate in the 5K or 1-mile Fun Run may also spend time here while family and friends participate in the running events. The Fight Back 5K is excited to bring burgers and beer to your finish line experience, sponsored by First Western Bank and Bike Rack Brewing Company.
Registration for the first 100 participants in the 5K guarantees a race shirt with the Fight Back 5K and Fun Run logo, and all runners in the 5K and Fun Run receive a finisher’s medal. The top three male and female finishers overall and in each age category in the 5K will receive awards as well.
