In 2014, the OSUCCC – James kicked off The James 5k Race Series.

The inaugural year of the series featured five annual running events in Columbus, Ohio, that reached more than 3,200 participants and hundreds more who came out to support their loved ones in their quest to make a difference for cancer patients and survivors.

Proceeds from these races benefit five different cancer research areas at the OSUCCC – James: breast, leukemia, lung, multiple myeloma and sarcoma cancers, and will raise over $247,000 annually.

The James 5k Race Series was established to support these races by increasing awareness, dollars and participants and will continue to grow in all aspects as we add new races in the future years.
