Run for Your Life 5-mile Run, 2.5-mile Walk
The CAMC Foundation Run for Your Life is held each June in conjunction with FestivAll. The 5 mile run and 2.5 mile walk begins at Haddad Riverfront Park, takes runners and walkers through the streets of Charleston and returns to the park to finish View Map. Each year, more than 400 runners and walkers come out to enjoy a morning of physical activity, music along the event course, refreshments at the finish line, and to support a good cause.
All proceeds from the Run for Your Life benefit colorectal cancer awareness and screening initiatives to help people who cannot otherwise afford critical screening procedures.
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in both men and women. Even though the number of deaths from colorectal cancer has decreased due to increased screenings and improvements in cancer treatment, the need for education and awareness is still important.
