Courage. Resilience. Strength. These are just a few characteristics that describe the over 14 million cancer survivors across America.

Not only do these words describe those who won their fight against cancer, but those who fought courageously and with dignity. As our community comes together on June 2, 2018, join Lutheran Medical Center and Cancer Centers of Colorado for our 11th Anniversary Run/Walk and  National Cancer Survivors Day Celebration.

Celebrate with survivors, help to inspire those who are recently diagnosed, and support the families who have lost their loved ones to cancer and be a Hero of Hope in our community.

The 1 mile walk is a great way to participate in the Heroes of Hope Run/Walk, especially for those who are looking for low-impact physical activity. Enjoy a shorter route through Lutheran Medical Center’s beautiful tree-lined campus, and cheer on your fellow race participants!

The Survivor Walk is a time to recognize and celebrate the resilient survivors in our community as they walk on Lutheran's beautiful campus.

The Kids Dash, sponsored by the City of Wheat Ridge, is a just-for-fun opportunity available for children ages six and under. Lutheran Medical Center’s Pet Therapy dogs make a special appearance as the half-way markers in this fun-run. Participants receive a special prize upon completion.

All courses are dog- and stroller-friendly, and medals will be awarded to the top finishers!
