Love to Run Free & Cure Cancer
Register to run/walk with us this year at Legacy of Hope’s official race! This year the Love Run has options to complete a half marathon or a 5K, and we encourage runners and walkers of all abilities to join us. Why is this year so important: A group of Philadelphia’s top oncology researchers, representing almost every hospital and cancer center in Philadelphia have agreed to work together in one of Philadelphia’s first multi-hospital collaborative cancer research projects! Our city’s most talented cancer researchers from hospitals across Philadelphia will be working together to expedite a cure for every cancer. $50,000 is needed to get this amazing project off the ground, and we are asking for your help to realize this amazing opportunity.
We’d love for you to register with Legacy of Hope for the Love Run, but we’re asking all runners/walkers from any club or any background to help make Philadelphia’s Legacy: A city that united to find a cure for every cancer. We are so confident this collaborative cancer research project will lead to cures; Legacy of Hope will refund the entire registration for the Love Run for anyone once they’ve raised $350! Cancer is devastating, has affected almost every one of us, and continues to take the lives of our friends and family members. Legacy of Hope is dedicated to finding a cure for every cancer in our lifetime, and we strongly believe this can and will start in Philadelphia. We believe everyone, regardless of background who is helping us find a cure for cancer should run free this year in the Love Run; whether you’ve already registered or not.
