Anti-Cancer Challenge


It takes all of us working together to create a cancer free future. We are looking to rally riders and runners, inspire supporters and motivate volunteers to join us in the fight.

The Anti-Cancer Challenge is movement of people committed to ending cancer once and for all. We never want to hear the terrifying words, “You have cancer.” Our mission is to raise as much as possible to find cures for cancer, which can be over 100 different diseases.

Anti-Cancer Challenge proceeds go directly to lifesaving cancer research at the UCI Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. As one of only 47 National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer centers, the innovative research done at UCI is developing new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.

Alone we are strong, together we are unstoppable. Join us in the anti-cancer movement. Make a donation, join our team, and tell everyone you know to get involved with the Anti-Cancer Challenge.
