Cancer Walk

The HRRMC Foundation is excited to announce the 2024 Annual Cancer Walk on Saturday, April 27 at 8 a.m.

First established in 2018, the HRRMC Cancer Walk brings community members together, through their shared experiences with cancer. The proceeds will go towards supporting HRRMC cancer patients.

On April 27, day-of registration will open at 8 a.m. and the walk will begin at 9 a.m., outside of the Outpatient Pavilion on HRRMC’s main campus at 1000 Rush Drive in Salida.

Registration

Registration is $35 per person and free for cancer survivors. Registration will be open soon, stay tuned. For more information please call (719) 530-8221.

For those who cannot attend the in-person event, or wish to walk independently, they may do so anytime leading up to the community event on April 27. Or you can register and donate your registration to a Cancer Survivor. Cancer Survivors get to walk for FREE, but they still need to register.

HRRMC will provide recommended walking trails in and around the communities of Salida, Buena Vista, Fairplay, Saguache and Westcliffe for a variety of skill levels.
