Team Cancer Sucks

Team Cancer Sucks is an endurance sports community on a mission. While training hard for group and personal success, we also race to raise needed funds to support cancer patients access the medical care they need to live. Why? Because cancer sucks!

6.5K -- FUN RUN -- HEALTH FAIR
PICNIC -- Community


JOIN US ON APRIL 1ST FOR THE 3RD ANNUAL AJ STRONG MEMORIAL RUN BENEFITING THE LAZAREX CANCER FOUNDATION AND SF HEP B FREE.

We will be running to commemorate Team Cancer Sucks's co-founder & Iron Man, AJ Jabonero, and to honor those battling or who have lost their battle to the disease. All proceeds from the event will help raise the level of Hepatitis B and Liver Cancer awareness in the local community and help patients find and afford cancer treatment.

The 6.5ish K Run/Walk will begin at Sports Basement, Presidio, and will be followed by a potluck, health fair, and music. Register as a solo runner/walker, virtual runner or register as a team in honor of a loved one who has impacted by either HBV or cancer. We look forward to seeing you there!

All proceeds from race registrations go to our 2017 beneficiaries: Lazarex Cancer Foundation and Hep B Free San Francisco.

All proceeds from Team Cancer Sucks apparel sales go to the AJ Memorial Fund.
