The Rio Grande Cancer Foundation, in our 21st year of service to the El Paso community, is proud to host the inaugural Our Colors Run Together 5K run/walk celebrating all cancer survivors and honoring those whose journey has ended.
Our Colors Run Together will be held on Sunday, April 2, 2017 at Cohen Stadium, where 5,000 plus participants will join in a sea of color to walk for awareness about the disease which is now categorized as a chronic illness.
In addition to the walkers and runners, vendors with information about resources for the cancer patient will pepper the field with booths to empower survivors in the many areas of cancer survivorship - from nutrition and fitness to mastectomy garments and support services.
Every cancer is represented by a ribbon color and each journey through the experience is as unique and pesonal as the various colors in the spectrum. In our 21 years of service to the El Paso community, the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation is proud to have provided support and services to all the colors of cancer. We are proud to be the host for this inaugural race where all the colors of cancer will be joining forces to celebrate and honor cancer patients and providers in our community.
Every dollar raised from the event will be used locally to support people who work, live and thrive in El Paso.. your family members, friends and colleagues with cancer. This first year, fifty percent of the proceeds will be designated in honor of the color pink andwill be used to support local breast cancer programs and services.The balance of the funds will support Rio Grande Cancer Foundation efforts toward reducing the burder of this disease.
Thank you for being a part of this exciting event.
