TCS New York City Marathon 2024

Runners for Cancer Warriors — We NEED YOU!

Our organization awards ‘Life Interrupted Grants™’ for young adults battling cancers to ease the financial stress of a cancer diagnosis. These grants allow individuals to concentrate on healing and not bills. AWF also funds innovative global cancer research for SCCC and delivers HOPE comfort bags to oncology suites.

We believe ALL Cancers Matter and are shining a light on a quiet demographic along with the word ‘rare’ in a diagnosis.  Young adults have a unique genetic makeup of cancer & their own special needs.

As an all volunteer foundation, your support means the world to us and cancer patients. Help us help others and SPREAD AWARENESS for YOUNG ADULT CANCER

 We are taking inquiries right now for anticipation for another SPECTACULAR race in 2024.
