The 14th annual Hoosier Outrun Cancer will take place September 29.
The proceeds will go to the Olcott Center for Cancer Education, and towards free services that support the families of those with cancer.
It started in 2000 says Kim Rudolph, special event manager with the Bloomington Hospital Foundation.
“We have a pre-race ceremony where we honor cancer survivors and those passed on from cancer,” Rudolph says, “We also have a kids run and a lot of other kids’ activities.”
The 5k course goes around the IU Campus and begins and ends at Indiana Memorial Stadium.
Rudolph says she hopes this event will bring awareness to cancer, the number of individuals who are affected by the disease, and the services provided through the Bloomington Hospital foundation.
“The wonderful thing is that we have a center here in town that can help guide anyone going through cancer with treatment,” Rudolph says, “They provide support through the entire treatment process. We’re very fortunate to have a facility like that in our community.”
Hoosiers Outrun Cancer takes place this Saturday at the Indiana Memorial Stadium.
The 5k race begins at 10:20 a.m, and the walk begins at 10:30 am. Late registration takes place tomorrow at the stadium, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m, and on Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
