JOIN THE MOVEMENT! 

Join the fight against cancer at the Sole Burner 5K Walk/Run, as we rally together to HONOR, CELEBRATE and REMEMBER loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. For 39 years, thousands of Sole Burner participants and volunteers have come together and raised over $7.2 million to save lives from cancer. The Sole Burner 5K Walk/Run continues to be more than just an event - it's a movement, a community of like-minded survivors, caregivers, volunteers and running enthusiast who believe that the future can be free from the pain and suffering caused by cancer. 

 

At this family friendly event participants are encouraged to join as an individual or form a team with your family, church, school, club or company.

Where will you do your Sole Burner 5K?

This year in an effort to keep participants as socially distant as possible we will be offering satellite locations around the Fox Valley for you to participate at. The walk/run route at each location is approximately 3.14 miles. ALL PARTICIPANTS CHOOSING CHIP TIMED WILL PARTICIPATE AT CITY PARK.  Participants choosing the self timed walk can select any of the 4 locations to participate at.

Make Your Miles More Meaningful!

Did you know the cancer death rate in the US has declined by 31% since 1991? That means we've helped save nearly 3.2 million lives during that time, in part because people like you invested in the American Cancer Society.  Click below to learn more about how you can take your fundraising for the American Cancer Society to the next level. 

Fundraising isn't all we do, but all we do depends on fundraising!
