Runners raised more than $650 million for cancer charities last year. Runner’s World has made it easy for more runners to get involved in the fight. Join us and let’s outrun cancer together.

In the July issue of Runner’s World, we explore the powerful link between running and cancer, a disease that will kill 570,000 Americans this year. We also created seven different covers, each featuring a cancer survivor (check out the photos to the left—you may recognize a certain cyclist).
We’ve learned that when we tell inspiring stories, our readers do more than just marvel—they want to help. So, for the first time ever, we're going beyond our primary mission of telling stories and we’re working with Crowdrise so YOU can make a difference.
We’ve compiled a list of cancer charities with a running connection—be it a race or a marathon training team. You can either make a donation to that organization (click “donate”) or you create your own fundraiser (click “join the team”). Then, tell your friends! Share this page with the email, Facebook, and Twitter buttons above. (To see a list of the charities organized by type of cancer go here.)
Small steps? Perhaps. But runners all know how far small steps can get us, especially working together. Let’s outrun cancer for good.
* FREE STUFF: We’ll give our fundraisers highly coveted Runner’s World schwag at random, and for winning mini contests.
