The 2020 5K Run/Walk is now virtual!
September 26 – October 10, 2020
The Blood, Sweat & Beers 5K has quickly become Iowa’s premier run/walk event and something not to be missed! Full of great purpose and great beer, it brings Iowa’s best people together to help our local families battling blood or pediatric cancer.
The last six months have been more unplanned than anything we could have ever imagined. There is an overwhelming sense of sadness for all that has been lost, and abounding uncertainty in the collective unknown to come.
However, we know one truth to remain certain. CANCER IS NOT CANCELLED.
Countless men, women, and children continue to receive blood and/or pediatric cancer diagnoses. Families endure their ongoing battles against an already life altering disease, now with the added stress and risk of COVID-19, especially as many cancer patients are immunocompromised.
We know going virtual is not ideal, but the safety of our community is our number one priority. These patients are people, like you and me, trying to take care of themselves and their families. Now, more than ever, they need our help. Our founding purpose was, and still remains true, to help patients and families with the “collateral damage” they face in the wake of a blood and/or pediatric cancer diagnosis.
