HRRMC hosts first annual Cancer Walk

Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center will host its first annual Cancer Walk on Saturday, Sept. 29, at 9 a.m. The HRRMC Cancer Walk will take the place of the American Cancer Society’s Tenderfoot Cancer Climb, a longstanding community event.

This year’s user-friendly route will start and end on the HRRMC hospital campus and is a little over 2 miles. Walkers will start after a brief address from a cancer survivor, and all survivors will be recognized.

The monies raised by the Walk will be deposited in an oncology fund administered by the HRRMC Foundation. All proceeds will benefit local oncology patients. Funds may be used for wigs, medications, gas cards, massage services, or equipment needed to care for oncology patients.

To register for the event, visit and click on the Cancer Walk button on the home page. The cost of the event is $35 and includes an event t-shirt.

Cancer survivors are not required to pay the event fee, but do need to register.

Sponsorship opportunities are no longer available; however, donations are welcome.
