40th Anniversary Sole Burner 5K Walk/Run!

Join the fight against cancer, as the Fox Valley community rallies together to honor, celebrate and remember loved ones and take action for lifesaving change. 

For 40 years, thousands of Sole Burner participants and volunteers have come together and raised over $7.2 million to save lives from cancer. This year our goal is to raise $200,000! Money raised from the Sole Burner help fund local programs and services and fund critical cancer research. 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 enthusiasts who believe that the future can be free from the pain and suffering caused by cancer.

This safe, family friendly event includes a 5K Run, 5K Walk, Kids Fun Run and Virtual 5K.
