5K run/walk at Yankee Stadium to raise funds for cancer research

The Yankees will be in Toronto to play the Blue Jays on Sunday, August 12th, but Yankee Stadium will not be empty. Thousands of runners, cancer survivors and supporters will gather for the fourth annual Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium. Since 2009, the event has raised more than $1.4 million for the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.

Registration is now underway, and it’s limited to 4,000 people. Participants pay a $40 registration fee and must fundraise at least $60. On July 12th, the registration fee will increase to $50 if spots still remain. Family and friends will be able to watch from the  Delta SKY360° Suite overlooking home plate.

“We’re so grateful to the New York Yankees and all of our sponsors for helping make this possible year after year,” said Lorraine W. Egan, President and CEO of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. “And we couldn’t ask for better supporters. They really enjoy the incredible Stadium views and work so hard every summer to raise money for cancer research.”
