The mission of the Race for Hope is to hold a 5k community walk/run to raise funds to provide financial assistance to people living with brain, head and neck cancer in the Capital Region.

Our grant-making fund is stewarded by The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region (CFGCR). Applications are open to qualifying 501c3 hospitals, cancer care facilities, and community cancer care support programs and organizations throughout the 12 counties of the Greater Capital Region.

Since 2009, the CRSS Race for Hope events have raised over $200,000, of which all monies have been dedicated to fundraising, since overhead costs are underwritten by Capital Region Special Surgery.  Past recipients have included Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, Inc. and patient services at St. Peter’s Cancer Care Center.
