Upcoming Events:

Like everything else, the April Kentucky Derby Festival marathon was canceled due to COVID-19.  So, we are made the best of a tough situation (something we are know a thing or two about) and reimagined Outrunning Cancer! This year, on the first weekend in August (Aug 1-2, 2020) team members will outrun, outwalk, outhike, outswim, OUTLIVE cancer in a worldwide fundraiser for Hope Scarves.

We outgarden, outbike, outdance to live each day to the fullest.  We outrun for those who can’t. For friends we have lost. For sisters, moms, wives, friends, strangers.  We move because wellness is important for all of us. Though this year looks different – we are excited to expand our team to include more activities and look forward to the largest team yet!

To join the MOVEment this year you can participate in three ways:

  • Join the team – Register, pick an activity, donate or raise $50
  • Fundraise – Create a fundraising page individually or with friends to support Hope Scarves
  • Donate – Make a donation- no gift is too big or too small

On August 1-2, 2020 all Outrunning Cancer team members will get active and do things that bring us joy as a way to support people facing cancer and metastatic breast cancer research. Please share photos on social media – tag Hope Scarves and #outrunningcancer.


Over the past 6 years 510 runners have raised over $350,000 for Hope Scarves to support metastatic breast cancer research & share Hope Scarves with people facing cancer around the world.  Now, more than ever, we look to celebrate the impact of Hope Scarves and initiate wellness as a way support our mission.
