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.
