Join MD Anderson Cancer Center this November and give cancer the boot.
Grab your favorite pair of boots and help support cancer research by walking with the nation’s top-ranked hospital for cancer care. Registration is now open for The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center’s Boot Walk to End Cancer®, taking place on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. at MD Anderson’s Texas Medical Center campus. Join your fellow Houstonians in a 1.2-mile walk for teams and individuals. This interactive event features fun activities and entertainment fit for all ages.
Last year, 6,700 passionate people attended the Boot Walk in support of MD Anderson’s mission to end cancer for good. Together, they raised more than $981,000, which went directly toward supporting cancer research and patient care programs at MD Anderson, which is home to the world’s largest cancer research program.
“The community response was beyond our dreams,” said Marshall Hicks, M.D., MD Anderson president ad interim. “We are grateful for our dedicated sponsors and volunteers who already are devoting time and energy to this year’s event, working hard to raise vital funds and awareness of our efforts in Making Cancer History.®”
Boot Walk participants are able to directly contribute to MD Anderson’s goal to end cancer in Texas, the nation and the world. This year, you can help, too. Visit mdanderson.org/bootwalk to sign up. Registration is free, and you can participate individually or with a team. If you’re unable to attend the event in person, you can still be a part of the event through the virtual walker option. All walkers are encouraged to fundraise leading up to the event, and if you raise at least $100, you’ll earn a Boot Walk T-shirt (so, there’s an extra incentive for you to get your friends and family involved).
Events like the Boot Walk show how much good a community can do when its members work together. From raising funds to raising awareness, you can be a part of Making Cancer History.®
