 YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Your participation in the ASK 5K & Fun Walk helps to make life better for local children with cancer from the moment of diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Gather your team and be a part of ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation's biggest fundraiser, with over $1.2 million rasied to-date for providing Assistance, Support and Kindness to kids with cancer and their families when they need it most.

 

NEW: TEAM SPIRIT AWARD

Let everyone know why your team is lacing up! The Team Spirit Award will be based on costumes, team name,  t-shirts, props, enthusiasm, songs, etc. Have fun and be creative. We know you'll look great!

 

SAME AWESOME COURSE

The ASK 5K & Fun Walk course is great for setting a PR for fastest time or for having the most fun! Runners, walkers, and strollers are welcomed.  Take off from the Flying Squirrels’ stadium and make your way through the area neighborhoods and finish in the infield, crossing home plate. Water stops and spirit stations line the way. Check out the Course Map!


FESTIVAL & AWARDS

The celebration continues at the post-race festival in the concourse, featuring live music with the Jangling Reinharts, finisher food, and activities for the kids. Don't miss the awards ceremony for top finishers, fundraising teams and most team spirit. We'll also cheer on our ASK Kourageous Kids during their inspiring victory lap.

KEEPING IT LOCAL

All funds raised by the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation stay right here in Central Virginia and directly impact the lives of children with cancer and their families. 

Help us reach this year's goal of $165,000 to provide programs for our community's youngest cancer patients and survivors, including:

  • Three staff positions: Child Life Therapist, Chaplain, and Child Psychologist at the ASK Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at VCU
  • Financial assistance to cover expenses like mortgages, car payments, and gas money for families in treatment
  • Weekly after-school tutoring and summer enrichment camps for patients and survivors
  • Social events for ASK kids and their families, like trips to the zoo, bowling, and the annual holiday party
  • Support groups for active patients and our bereaved families

Making life better for kids with cancer. That's really the most important reason we can think of for you to register, donate or volunteer - but read on for more good stuff you'll want to know!
