RUN. WALK. IMPACT. CURE.

because CANCER SUCKS!



Registration includes: t-shirt, food 

and a beer (21+, please bring your ID)


The Challenge 5K Run/Walk is a race in Tippecanoe County that incorporates the community, staff, students, and athletes of Purdue University. ALL of the money raised goes to support cancer research at the Purdue Center for Cancer Research. Part of this year's funding will go to the Tyler Trent Cancer Research Endowment. We have amazing sponsors that help offset the costs so that participants’ registration fees and donations go directly to help find a cure for cancer right here at Purdue. We have raised, in total, over $835,000 for cancer research at Purdue University. This is thanks to the dedication of our sponsors, participants, and of course the very talented researchers we have on staff at the Purdue Center for Cancer Research. Get fit, give back, and take The Challenge!
