At the Duke Cancer Institute we are fighting this deadly yet preventable disease, and we need your help. All donations from the event will go towards funding colorectal cancer research. Not only will this race raise funds for research, it will bring our community together under the banner of colorectal cancer awareness. We hope to provide an important opportunity for patients, survivors, friends, and family members to come together for an important cause.
We are excited about the annual Duke Crush Colorectal Cancer 5K Run/Walk and expect this event to grow with each passing year. We would greatly appreciate any donations (monetary or food, i.e., bottled water, bananas, apples, granola bars) in support this event. All donations are tax deductible. We also encourage you to run the race as individuals or as a team and share the event with friends and family.
Forming or joining a team is a way to engage with family and friends for a common goal, coordinate fundraising efforts, and have fun! Special t-shirts, props (think poop emoji or anything Duke Blue - the color of colorectal cancer awareness), and costumes are absolutely allowed and are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. We would love to take team photos before the race. Gather together with your team and then come over to the stage for team photos before the race.
