American Cancer Society DetermiNation

Raise money for American Cancer Society DetermiNation

DetermiNation is the American Cancer Society’s event endurance program, spanning a variety of sports including cycling, running, hiking, yoga, and more.  The collective efforts of the dedicated athletes who use their fortitude to help raise funds to take down cancer are nothing short of amazing.


Join DetermiNation and you’re not just participating in an endurance event. You’re pushing yourself to help save lives from cancer. Just like hard work goes into your event training, the American Cancer Society gives our all through things like breakthrough research, a 24/7 cancer helpline, and free rides to chemo. Together, we’ll tackle every course, rally every community, and stay absolutely relentless in the fight against cancer.

All DetermiNation athletes receive the following benefits:

  • Guaranteed race entry
  • A fundraising mentor who will help you meet your fundraising goals.
  • Monthly group runs & online coaching
  • An inspiring (and delicious) pre-race dinner to celebrate your accomplishments.

The individual fundraising minimums for 2021 are:

Full Marathon - $500
Half Marathon - $400
Relay Team - $1,000 ($200/person)
5k - $150
Kids Marathon - $50
Toddler Trot - $50
 Walk - $50

All runners will receive a DetermiNation running singlet.
Those who pre-commit to raising $1,500 for the Back Half will receive a DetermiNation Jacket once they hit their goal.

Runners who raise over $5,000 will receive a National Pacesetter Jacket from the American Cancer Society.
