About This Activity

Our goal of the Fox CHASE AWAY CANCER Event is to provide a one day celebration and recognition of Fox Chase Cancer Center employees who continually fight cancer every single day for us and our families and those who have been or are currently being treated at Fox Chase. Bring your friends, bring your family, bring anyone who has joined you in the fight against cancer. We are in this together and it is time to CHASE AWAY CANCER for good!

The proceeds of this great event will go to the social work department of Fox Chase Cancer Center so they may place these funds into the hands of families who need help fighting the battle against cancer. A portion of the proceeds will also go to help fund the HCM Foundation Service Programs.
