Renal Race 5K Run and 1-mile Fun Walk

Sunday, March 12, 2023

It is estimated that 65,150+ new cases of Kidney Cancer will be reported in 2019. That’s among men, women and children. It is reported that $3.1 billion dollars are spent each year on kidney cancer treatment. That’s just too many lives and too much money to be consumed by this disease.

Our vision is for a world free of kidney cancer. Our mission is to walk or run one step at a time to do so! It’s our job to stop asking why this is happening and do something about it.

We will race on March 12th, 2023 for our family members, loved ones, friends, co-workers, neighbors and for those we haven’t met yet. The Renal Race will make a donation to Kidney Cancer research and advocacy programs.

Together…We’re Still Kickin’ Kidney Cancer.

When: March 12th, 2023
Where: Registration will be held at Wilkes-Barre Public Square.  The race will start and end on Wilkes-Barre Public Square.
Day of Registration/Packet Pickup: 8:45-9:45 AM
