Why We Walk/Run

On June 2nd, 2024, join us for the Celebration of Life 5k Walk/Run, both online with a virtual run and in person, as we unite survivors, co-survivors, and supporters in a testament to strength, hope, and community.

Cancer is a formidable adversary, affecting millions of lives globally. Yet, amidst its challenges, stories of courage, perseverance, and victory emerge. National Cancer Survivors Day is not just a date on the calendar; it’s a symbol of resilience, a reminder that life after cancer is not only possible but worth celebrating.

In hosting the Celebration of Life, Unconditionally Her, the WSA, and AGEM aim to harness the power of unity. Survivors, alongside their co-survivors—friends, family, caregivers—will embark on a journey of solidarity. It’s a race not against each other but against the odds, a collective stride towards a brighter, cancer-free future.

So, on June 2nd, let’s paint the world with the colors of hope. Whether you’re lacing up your running shoes, donating to support survivorship programs, donning your favorite survivor tee, or simply spreading awareness, your presence matters. Together, let’s make this Celebration of Life 5k Walk/Run a testament to the strength of the human spirit and a beacon of hope for generations to come.

And, as we mark National Cancer Survivors Day, Unconditionally Her will be featuring Survivor Sunday as we share stories of survivors from across the world leading up to June 2nd where we will celebrate life, unity, and resilience. Whether online or in person, let’s come together to honor survivors, support co-survivors, and stand in solidarity against cancer. Together, we are stronger. Together, we are unstoppable.

Our Supporting Organization

Women Survivors Alliance, a 501c3 non-profit whose purpose is to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life, and embrace their journey. 100% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to an organization supporting all cancer survivors on behalf of the WSA.

National Cancer Survivors Day: A Call to Action.

A Celebration of Life.

National Cancer Survivors Day® is a poignant, inspiring Celebration of Life led by the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. It is also a call to action for further research, more resources, and increased public awareness to improve the lives of cancer survivors.

This day provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s more than 18 million cancer survivors – to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way.
