Cancer Walk

HRRMC's Cancer Walk is back after a 2020 hiatus!

Join us over the course of two weeks in late August through mid-September. Walk your favorite trails or try out new ones in Chaffee County, Saguache, Westcliffe and more, all in the name of cancer awareness. Bring your friends, family and canine companions and walk as many times as you'd like, knowing that all proceeds will benefit the HRRMC Oncology Department and cancer patients seen here.

Registration and Sponsorships

Registration for the Cancer Walk is $35 per person, and $300 per sponsor. Survivors can choose to register free of charge.
