The Arizona Diamondbacks will host its second D-backs Race Against Cancer, presented by University of Arizona Cancer Center at St. Joseph’s Hospital, on May 3 with proceeds benefitting the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation. The 5K race/1 mile walk will wind through the streets of downtown Phoenix and participants will finish at home plate at Chase Field.

The 5K run will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the 1-Mile Banana Boat Family Fun Walk will start at 9 a.m. at Chase Field. Each participant will receive an exclusive D-backs racing shirt, unique finisher medal and a ticket for a future D-backs game. Participants are encouraged to register early to take advantage of the $40 early registration for runners and $20 for walkers.

Early registration ends on April 24, after which registration will be $50 for runners and $30 for walkers. Registration for children 12 and under is only $5.

The race was developed to become a voice for all D-backs fans that have been affected by cancer. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and will be distributed to Arizona nonprofits that provide screening, treatment and support for those dealing with cancer. Race participants are encouraged to stick around after the race for a health and wellness expo.

Bringing together the strengths of two renowned organizations, The University of Arizona Cancer Center and St. Joseph’s was launched in 2011 to provide the highest quality care for cancer patients in the Southwest. The group’s new five story state-of-the art outpatient facility is scheduled to open in 2015 in downtown Phoenix.
