8th Annual Run FORE Cancer 5K / 8K

Silverado Golf Course • 7605 E. Indian Bend Road ScottsdaleAZ  85250 Organized by StartLine Sports LLC

About this event

Join us as we return to where it all began -

Run FORE Cancer at the beautiful Silverado Golf Course. Who do you run FORE? This run benefits St. Josephs Hospital and Medical Center. In the past seven years of the event we are excited to have donated over $321,000 to support the amazing works done by this hospital. Help us break last year's donation level of over $30,000! This event is limited to 600 participants.

About the event

We will again take to the cart paths of the beautiful Silverado Golf Club, starting and ending at the Club House. This event will feature two distances - run the Front 9/5K or the Full 18/8K. The event started as a tribute run held in memory of Kathy Maxwell who lost her battle to sarcoma cancer on December 14, 2012. When the cancer reached her spine her family reached out to Barrows Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center. The staff there were able to manage her pain and give her another year with her husband and daughter and to watch her grandchildren grow.

Now in our 7th year we have raised over $321K for St. Joseph's and it has grown into more than just a tribute to Kathy. It is now a tribute for so many others who run in memory of someone they lost. Please consider joining us this year and running in memory of someone you lost or run to raise money for an amazing organization that is helping so many fight their own battles.
