James 5K Series

In 2014, we are kicking off the James 5k Race Series. This inaugural year of the series will feature five annual running events in Columbus, Ohio that reach over 3,200 participants and hundreds more that come 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.

Join us for our kickoff party!
