Ride, run, walk, SportsQuest, or play to create an impact on cancer research!

Participant Ruth Hill, of team Ruth Hill's Tribe, said "Together, we are changing the course of cancer care." In 2017, Huntsman Cancer Foundation combined the iconic Huntsman 140 cycling ride with the community-centered Huntsman 5K and Kids Fun K to create a single-day event. The Huntsman SportsFest is the perfect way for people like you, with the shared goal of creating a future free of cancer, to join together. One hundred percent of your fundraising propels breakthrough research, treatment, and prevention efforts at Huntsman Cancer Institute. Participants can even designate fundraising to a specific type of cancer that has affected them or a loved one!
