July 4 Race to Benefit UNC's Cancer Institute

The University of Northern Colorado's Rocky Mountain Cancer Rehabilitation Institute will host the annual Race Against Cancer, beginning at 7:15 a.m. Monday, July 4.

Staged on the course of the Greeley Stampede Independence Day Parade, the 5K run/walk draws over 2,000 runners from across the country, with all proceeds benefiting the RMCRI.

The entry fee before race day is $25; entering on race day costs $30. Pre-registration is available online or at Bell's Running, 3620 10th St., Greeley, and closes at 5 p.m. July 2. Come to take part or watch the race and stay to view the parade.

Also, volunteers to help with the race are needed. Call the institute at 351-1876 to help.

The RMCRI, part of the College of Natural and Health Sciences, specializes in clinical services, clinical and basic research and education on cancer treatment-related symptoms, and is committed to improving the quality of life of cancer patients through prescriptive exercise rehabilitation.
