Virtual Sprint For Life 5K Run/Walk

24th edition

VIRTUAL RACE: The 24th Annual Sprint for Life 5K and Sprint for Sprouts Kids’ Run has been moved into a virtual event as part of MD Anderson’s proactive measures to prevent the introduction or spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Make a difference in the fight against ovarian cancer!

Founded in 1998, Sprint for Life has two missions:  to raise awareness and research funds for ovarian cancer. Hosted by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Sprint for Life has raised more than $5.6 million for the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program, one of the world’s leading efforts dedicated to ovarian cancer research.  Funding has allowed researchers to develop new clinical trials, understand the biology of ovarian cancer and develop new therapies for the disease.

Free registration for the first 100 Ovarian Cancer Survivors and the first 100 Caregivers of Ovarian Cancer Survivors – courtesy of OVARCOME Contact the Sprint for Life offices at [email protected] for details.
