The Race Against Cancer is a walk and run* that raises funds for Thompson Cancer Survival Center's Cancer Outreach Services program. Your participation and support make a difference in the lives of the patients and families of Thompson Cancer Survival Center. Since its inception 25 years ago, the race has raised more than $7.4 million for cancer education and care in East Tennessee. Thanks to Race Against Cancer supporters and participants, thousands of medically underserved individuals have received life-saving screenings and information each year. Most importantly proceeds raised by the race go to fight cancer within our local community.
