Please join us and run or walk for those who have been diagnosed with cancer. When you support Running Wild 4 Hope, you help City of Hope shorten the time it takes to get from bold, innovative ideas to powerful new cancer and medical treatments.

On Sunday, March 20, 2016, our community will come together in the fight against cancer at Running Wild 4 Hope to raise funds for research and integrative therapies for patients with life-threatening illnesses.

Running Wild 4 Hope is a 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk fundraising event open to all ages. We also offer a Baby Jogger event for mom/dad, or you may choose to run with your dog in our Doggie Dash division. Start a team or participate as an individual. NEW THIS YEAR – Men, women, children and “Fido” will unite and participate in one event.  Start time is 8.am. Please see event details for additional information.

You can also search for a participant and donate. Find a participant or click the Donate button now!

City of Hope is committed to transforming the future. As a world-renowned biomedical research, treatment and education center, we shorten the time from new research idea to new medical treatment in order to quickly bring cures to patients. Our drive to revolutionize the treatment of cancer and other life-threatening diseases is based, in part, on our success. City of Hope’s compassionate care model has been adopted by hospitals across the globe, while our research has led to synthetic insulin, used by millions worldwide with diabetes, and to the lifesaving cancer drugs Rituxan, Avastin and Herceptin. That success is a testament to the transformative power of philanthropy.

So gather your family, friends and co-workers and register today! We’ll see you at the starting line!
