About This Activity

Please join us for our 16th annual Coaches vs. Cancer 5k run/walk on Saturday, April 25th! Whether you run competitively or you are just looking to have fun with friends and family, we would love to see everyone support the fight against cancer! With different divisions, all runners/walkers will be accomodated with proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society in collaboration with Coaches vs. Cancer.

The route goes through Penn State's campus and is a great way to see all the amazing parts of Dear Old State. Start at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park and end at Beaver Stadium, the home of the Nittany Lions!
