Join us as walkers, runners, and volunteers come together to honor cancer survivors, raise awareness about reducing cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease.

Your participation allows the American Cancer Society to help people facing cancer today and find cures to end the disease tomorrow. Through sponsorship, and the fundraising efforts of our participants, we will finish the fight against cancer.


Until June 30th, the registration fee per person is a non-refundable $35. This fee is counted toward your fundraising goal. After June 30th the price of registration increases to $40, so be sure to sign up today!


What to Expect

5K runners can expect a scenic course around Goucher campus and part of the Towson area, suited to experienced runners and those brand new to 5Ks alike.

1 mile walkers can expect a fun, casual stroll at any pace, while being cheered on by family, friends, and neighbors.

And all festival attendees can expect good food, good music, raffle prizes from area businesses, and a great atmosphere as we unite as a community in support of the American Cancer Society and its vision of a world without cancer.

For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s. Join us to help finish the fight.
