Thank You for Joining the Race to Beat Cancer

Race start with blue archway for Race to Beat Cancer

Thank you to all the MHRI and MedStar associates who attended and participated in the 2017 Race to Beat Cancer 5K. This charitable event is one of the premier 5K races in Washington, DC, and was held on Saturday, September 16, 2017.

In 2017, more than $300,000 was raised for cancer research. All proceeds from the race were donated to the Washington Cancer Institute at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. These proceeds directly support research into the treatment and cure of cancer. The Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, DC, hosted this annual event. This race celebrates survivors and honors those who have lost their battles with cancer.

Opportunities to contribute to advances in research are available through participation in other upcoming research walks. Learn more about events in DC and Baltimore here.
