BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
The American Cancer Society DetermiNation program began in Chicago in 1996 and partners with races in the Chicago, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Detroit areas. Together with millions of our supporters worldwide, we help people stay well, help people get well, find cures, and fight back against cancer.
Every step you take and every mile you conquer will help the American Cancer Society continue to save lives and create a world with less cancer. Because of you:
- We’re doing the most to help people with cancer today and are working tirelessly to find cures to end the disease tomorrow.
- We’re the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.8 billion each year to prevent, treat, and find cures for all types of cancer.
- We're here 24 hours a day for you and the people you love with information, answers, and emotional support.
- We work with lawmakers to increase funding for cancer research and help make your community a healthier place to live.
