About This Activity

Join us for a run and support our cancer kids this September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!  

Awards will be presented to top 3 male and female finishers in the 5k run.  Each participant will receive a long sleeve tech shirt.

The 6th annual Cross Country Courage Classic takes place on a designated cross country course with the beautiful Sandia Mountains as the backdrop.  It starts east of the Albuquerque Academy campus, next to the tennis courts, and features a 5k run and walk, and a 1k kids fun run.  The cross country course exhibits good footing and includes several water & gatorade stations, post-race refreshments, music and a post-race silent auction (gift baskets, gift certificates, handmade blankets and quilts, woodworking items, photography, etc).  100% of the proceeds from the Cross Country Courage Classic will benefit our Pediatric Hematology & Oncology Program, and our patients that are receiving treatment for life-threatening illnesses.
