Who doesn’t LOVE BACON?
Bacon for a Cure 5K Run/Walk will be hosted on Saturday, August 16th at 9:00 am in Seratoma Park – Shelter 10
How is This Race Different?
Bacon is one of America’s favorite foods; combining it with a non-competitive 5k run/walk will allow you ample time to enjoy the bacon stands throughout the course. The Aetna Relay for Life Team is excited to bring this type of 5k to Bismarck/Mandan! All ages and runner/walker levels are welcome to participate. This is a family friendly event that you will be talking about long after the race is complete.
Bringing Home the Bacon
Get ready to sample the best bacon in Bismarck/Mandan along the 3 mile flat course in Seratoma Park. As you make your way through the course you will encounter different bacon stations. This race is not timed, so you may enjoy yourself along the route. You won’t want to miss this fun one of a kind race!
Where Does Your Money Go?
All event proceeds will be donated to American Cancer Society. So your “bacon” really will be going to find a cure!
At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer – just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!
Team Aetna is proud to begin their 2014/2015 fundraising campaign by hosting the Bacon for a Cure 5k event.

When & Where
Team Aetna Relay for Life
Relay For Life teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around a track or path at a local high school, park, or fairground. Events are up to 24 hours long, and because cancer never sleeps, each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times.
Every year, the Relay For Life movement raises more than $400 million. The American Cancer Society puts these donations to work, investing in groundbreaking research in every type of cancer and providing free information and services to cancer patients and their caregivers. We're fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer, in your community and everyone else's.
