The Cancer League of Colorado Race for Research
The Race for Research is one of four main fundraising events for 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 early stage cancer research in Colorado. This support provides researchers seed money for projects that have the potential to generate additional research funds from other organizations, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). 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. Cancer League also allocates up to $150,000 each year for investigator-initiated clinical trials. 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.
