About This Activity

Come race for a reason! Join us in the fight against cancer by raising money for research at Georgia's only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer left.

The Winship Win the Fight 5K is a family-friendly event and will raise money for state-of-the-art research that is extending and saving lives.

We invite you to become a Winship Warrior and join us in the Winship Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk. You can create a team or join the Winship 5K as an individual. We invite you to set a $250 minimum fundraising goal and encourage your friends, family and co-workers to join you in making a difference in the fight against cancer.

You can target your tax-deductible donation to any number of Winship cancer funds based on your personal interests. If you would like to allocate your gifts to a specific fund, please visit to register.

You do not have to race to raise money for the cause. We even have a name for those who would like to help win the fight but would prefer not to run or walk in the race—'Sleep-in' warriors! If you don’t want to walk or run, just come join the fun! You can still register, and you can still have a team. Just designate when you register that you are a 'Sleep-in' Warrior.
