The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation, an all-volunteer non-profit organization, provides support for cancer patients and their families who live on Hatteras Island. Founded in December 2000, the group’s primary goal is to raise funds to offer financial support for patients to help them pay for medical costs not reimbursed by insurance and to pay for travel expenses for themselves and their care givers to medical centers for cancer treatment.
We are excited for HICF’s first virtual run and hope to host more in the future with uncertainty of the “new normal”. This run will be available Columbus weekend from 8am Friday, October 9th until 8 am Tuesday, October 13th.
The cost will be $35.00 per individual, but we encourage you to run in groups of at least 4 members for $30.00 per person.
We also have a fun run that is 1 mile. The cost for that is $20.
Even though this is a virtual event we still want to see everyone’s participation and crazy pink outfits and ask to tag us on Facebook (Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation).
We have a new t-shirt design that will be mailed out to all participants. Local pick up will be available on October 1 from 4pm-6pm in the packing lot of Conner’s Supermarket, and all other shirts will be mailed on October 2.
Thank you for your support and participation, we look forward to seeing your virtual 5K journey.
