The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation, an all-volunteer non-profit organization, provides support for cancer patients and their families who live on Hatteras Island. Founded in December 2000, the group’s primary goal is to raise funds to offer financial support for patients to help them pay for medical costs not reimbursed by insurance and to pay for travel expenses for themselves and their caregivers to medical centers for cancer treatment.
This year we are starting back with in-person racing and it will be a COLOR BLAST race! Different stations will be set up to "blast" you with color! It's colored baby powder and is not harmful to humans or clothing. It's best to wear our race T-shirts or your choice of white clothing for the full effect!
The cost for the 5k is $45. Runners, walkers, bikers, and strollers are welcome. This is a timed event so walkers and strollers are asked to start at the back of the pack.
Thank you for your support and participation.
This year, we will be offering a virtual run.
