You will be touched by cancer in your lifetime. Or maybe you already have been. Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians will be given a life-changing diagnosis and, for 1 in 4, it will be fatal. Together, we have made real progress in changing these numbers. Your relentless perseverance in supporting research and medical advancements has made a meaningful difference for many individuals and their families. In 1992, only 55% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer lived an additional 5 years or more. Today, that number is 63%. But there is still so much work to be done.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Rethink Breast Cancer’s mission is to empower young people worldwide through innovative education, support, and advocacy. We are proud to support their work with a portion of the proceeds from Stronger Than Cancer 5k.
This is your race. Who are you finishing for? Together, we are stronger than cancer.
What do I get with my order? This package includes a Stronger Than Cancer 5k race entry, high-quality medal, soft-feel t-shirt, and full-color bib.
How do the shirts fit? Our Stronger Than Cancer 5k shirts come in a men's and women's cut. Made from Primease tri-blend (cotton, polyester, and rayon), they are soft, breathable, and snag-resistant. Please see the Fit Guide for additional sizing information.
When can I submit results? October 5 – December 31, 2020
How do I submit results? After you register, you will receive an activation email. Think of this as your check-in at the Registration Tent before you head to the Start Line. You can use any app or device to track your run. You can submit results a variety of ways: by uploading a GPX file, connecting directly to your Strava or Under Armour app, or manually entering your time!
Do I have to run? Absolutely not! This is your race and you get to complete it at your pace. When you submit results, you will be able to select what type of activity you used to complete the distance.
When will my order ship? This package is in stock and now shipping! You will receive an email confirmation when your order has shipped so that you know to keep your eyes peeled.
Is there a charity component? Yes! We believe in the importance of giving back. A portion of Stronger Than Cancer 5k will be donated to Rethink Breast Cancer.
