If you would like to register a team, but don’t know who will be on your team yet, no problem! Register using the Create a Team option and register only yourself. Once you know who you’d like to add to your team, you can send out a registration link with your team name to potential team members.

Nothing unites a group like the opportunity to have fun and do good all at the same time. Kickin’ Cancer!® thrives on teams and teams thrive with us. Whether you’re a corporation, social club, sports team, or just a group of friends, take the leap to get together and highlight your combined efforts as a Team. 

If your business is interested in a sponsorship level we will gladly consider your ability to raise the minimum dollars needed as equal to a check written. 

Want your business to be recognized as a SPONSOR? Raise $1,500 as a corporate team!

THE COURSE

The scenic 5K course starts at San Vicente Blvd. and Darlington and continues West on the North side of San Vicente Blvd., U-turns at Avondale and loops back on the South side of San Vicente Blvd. The Kiddie Fun Run (less than 1K) is a quick out-and-back on the official race course. It starts and ends at San Vicente & Darlington. Children (age 10 & under can run by themselves or with the help of an adult).

 
 

5k awards

This is a timed event. Prizes will be given to the top female and male 5K finishers (1st, 2nd & 3rd Place) overall. Prize packages include gift certificates from our sponsors, Kickin’ Cancer!® merchandise and other cool stuff. Kiddie Fun Run finisher’s will receive a special takeaway.
