OutRunning Osteosarcoma 5k & Kid Dash

A Super Hero Event for Kids with Cancer

Sunday, March 1, 2020 – The Scottsdale Resort
at McCormick Ranch, Phoenix, Arizona

THE GOAL of OutRunning Osteosarcoma Super Hero 5K and Kid Dash is to Make It Better for osteosarcoma kids by raising money for meaningful research and direct patient support. Every dollar raised for osteosarcoma research goes as a whole dollar to fund osteosarcoma research. Our $100,000 goal will help fund our annual research funding, which is selected by the osteosarcoma community.

The OutRunning Osteosarcoma 5K is the perfect finish on the FACTOR 2020 Osteosarcoma Research Conference at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. The 5K course starts and finishes on-property, where OsteoWarriors, OsteoAngel Families, Pediatric Oncologists, and researchers will be cheering on runners!

Virtual Run:

Can’t make it to Phoenix on March 1st? Make it Better for kids with osteosarcoma, bone cancer, from your own neighborhood!

Gather your friends and family and rally your community to join us virtually. All you have to do is fundraise then walk or run a 5K distance on March 1st, we’ll even send you an event shirt and superhero cape!

Kid Dash:

Perfect for kids of all ages and abilities! The OutRunning Osteosarcoma Kid Dash will be a 200 meter dash backed up from the finish line and will start promptly at 8:00 AM. We encourage attendees for this event to costume-up in a superhero costume. All participants will receive a event shirt and an official MIB Agents superhero cape. We encourage kids to fundraise for the Dash, but there are no fundraising minimums required for this event.
