This is RFA’s signature race that includes the awareness of several different cancers because cancer affects everyone. This virtual race benefits the Cancer Research Institute (CRI).
CRI is the world’s only nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to harnessing the immune system’s power to conquer all cancers. Their mission is to support and coordinate research that will yield an understanding of the immune system and its response to cancer, with the ultimate goal of developing immunological methods for the treatment, control, and prevention of the disease.
