Join Us for the 13th Annual Run!
When: Saturday, June 15, 2019

Thank you supporting the Susan Sandoval Memorial 5K for Ovarian Cancer Awareness. Since 2007, in honor and memory of our beloved Susan, we’ve been raising funds for education, awareness, and finding a cure for all gynecologic cancers. This year, we are excited to announce we will be partnering with Huntsman Cancer Foundation and the Huntsman 5K on June 15th.
100% of funds raised through this event will go to support ovarian cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute. Join our team and bring hope to patients and their families by participating in this event, raising money, and doing our part to help eradicate cancer from the earth in memory of Susan and many others. After the 5K, celebrate with friends and family at the Finish Line Festival with food, drinks, live music, giveaways from sponsors, games, and a kid’s zone play area.
We truly appreciate all your support throughout the years and cannot thank you enough. We look forward to seeing all the familiar faces and new participants, and hope you join us in the fight against cancer.
