Second Annual Winship 5K Goes Over the Top

It was clear from the beginning that last year's inaugural Winship Win the Fight 5K Walk/Run would not be the last. The 2012 Winship 5K was an overwhelming success on every front! With nearly 2,800 registered, the runners and walkers paced the course through the Emory campus and surrounding historic Druid Hills neighborhood. A new record was set with over $375,000 raised to advance cancer research at Winship. We are grateful to the corporate community for its generous support. Many of our original sponsors renewed their support and we welcomed new sponsors to the Winship 5K family. The event featured special recognition of the many cancer survivors who attended and participated, as well as a tot trot for the little ones and an awards ceremony for top runners and fundraisers!

"We are thrilled about the results, especially the way the race brought together the community and the Winship family," said Dr. Walter J. Curran, Jr., Winship executive director. "It was gratifying to see that many of the participants were cancer survivors or on teams representing Winship and Emory departments. There were many stories of courage and inspiration on race day—an exhilarating celebration of hope and healing."

Get ready and set your mark! The 2013 Winship Win the Fight 5K Walk/Run will take place October 5, 2013! It's not too early to start recruiting team members and setting goals for next year's race!
