Hoosiers Outrun Cancer is hosted by the Bloomington Hospital Foundation and is a 5K and 1-mile run/walk race that benefits the IU Health Olcott Center. The Olcott Center provides the local community with cancer prevention and early detection and assists cancer patients and families with information on cancer diagnosis and treatment. Last year alone, they provided information and services to more than 12,000 people. That includes nearly 6,000 encounters with patients under treatment, cancer survivors and family members – seeing an average of almost 500 patients per month.
The services offered by the IU Health Olcott Center are all FREE OF CHARGE thanks in large part to Hoosiers Outrun Cancer and the amazing runners, walkers and volunteers who support the race. The dedication and commitment from our community over the past 17 years has helped raise nearly $3 million in support of the Olcott Center and cancer related services. Together we’ve had a positive impact on the lives of thousands of cancer patients.
We invite you to run in memory of a loved one, walk in honor of someone battling cancer, or simply gather a fun team for a fantastic cause! Please join us on September 30, 2017, for Hoosiers Outrun Cancer’s 18th running which takes place on the beautiful Indiana University campus!
