On Saturday, September 20th, 2020 the HEADstrong Foundation will present the 2nd Annual Running aHEAD of Cancer, a 5K Race and 1M Walk at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA. 

The Running aHEAD of Cancer 5K is an annual event that assists local families and funds complimentary nights at Nick’s House, a guest family residence, operated by HEADstrong that provides complimentary lodging and support for families displaced to the region in the pursuit of lifesaving cancer treatment.   

Your support will be instrumental in allowing us to strengthen our commitment to families in our community and living here while their loved ones undergo advanced care treatment in the region.  

We invite you to review our complete list of sponsorship opportunities for the event.  We would be honored to have your company, business or organization participate in the event as a Running Team, as the Running aHEAD of Cancer 5k is a wonderful team building experience.
