Thank you for attending the 23rd Annual
Cancer League of Colorado Race for Research!
Sunday, August 18th was a beautiful day for about 1,000 runners and walkers to attend our fundraising event in Washington Park, Denver. Although we're still accepting donations for the next few weeks, it looks like we raised more than $100,000 for cancer research and cancer patient support services in Colorado.

The Race for Research is a fundraising event for the Cancer League of Colorado. Cancer League is a 100% volunteer-run organization with no paid staff and no offices. Approximately 85% of the money raised is directed to cancer research and clinical trials conducted in Colorado. This money helps leverage additional research funds from other organizations, such as the National Cancer Institute. Cancer League grants are awarded based on recommendations from the Scientific Advisory Board, a group of volunteer Colorado medical specialists who represent a variety of cancer research and treatment disciplines. The remaining 15% of the money raised by Cancer League is used to help fund local service organizations that provide support directly to cancer patients and their families in Colorado.
