WHO WE ARE
To raise awareness of National Cancer Survivor Month, the DHR Health Advanced Care Center (oncology department) is hosting the inaugural PROJECT PURPLE: A 5K FOR ALL CANCERS.
We invite the community to join us to celebrate hope for the healing of all cancer patients! Be part of our efforts to demonstrate that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality! Also, help us spread the word on the importance of early detection.
Purple is the color that represents ALL cancers. ONE COLOR. ONE RUN. ONE FIGHT.
WHY WE RUN
Net proceeds from the 1st Annual PROJECT PURPLE: A 5K FOR ALL CANCERS will benefit the cancer patients assisted through the Renaissance Cancer Foundation.
The Renaissance Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2008. Our mission is to provide financial assistance to uninsured cancer patients in the Rio Grande Valley.
Our vision is to ease the financial burden that comes with a cancer diagnosis because all a patient should worry about is healing.
