The University of Northern Colorado's Rocky Mountain Cancer Rehabilitation Institute will host the annual Race Against Cancer, beginning at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, July 4.
Staged on the course of the Greeley Stampede Independence Day Parade, the 5K run/walk annually draws over 2,000 runners from across the country, with all proceeds benefiting the RMCRI.
The entry fee before race day is $25 for adults and $15 for those 12 and younger; entering on race day costs $30. Pre-registration is available at www.active.com or at Bell's Running, 3620 10th St., Greeley, and must be made before July 3.
Come to take part or watch the race and stay to view the parade.
Volunteers to help with the race are needed. Volunteers will receive a T-shirt and breakfast before the race. To volunteer, email volunteer coordinator Traci Parry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
