On Saturday, October 18th, hundreds of participants will gather to run and walk in honor of cancer survivors, to memorialize those who we have lost to cancer, and to benefit the mission of the Reynolds Cancer Support House. Last year’s Survivors’ Challenge drew over 1,200 participants for the one mile walk and 5k race. The 10k run is part Arkansas Grand Prix Series bringing in runners from around the state. It will be a wonderful morning. The Survivors’ Challenge is an important fundraiser for the Reynolds Cancer Support House.

Put Together a Team!
Recruit your co-workers, neighbors, family members to run or walk with you. Run for fun, health, teambuilding, to celebrate life, to remember a life, or or to show your support for the mission of the Reynolds Cancer Support House. Make and wear your own team shirts, hats, head bands etc.
The first team member to register online will be able to create a team name that will appear in a drop-down box. Other registrants will be able to select the team name from the menu.
Team awards will be given for the following:
- Most spirited (think costumes, cheers, signs, or other ways to *wow* us!)
- Newcomer (first time team with the most team members)
- Top Fundraiser (team raising the most money for Support House)
- Largest (includes registrants in all events, including the “UnRun“)
- Fastest 5k (cumulative time of your fastest four runners)
- Fastest 10k (cumulative time of your fastest four runners)
Team members do not have to participate in the same event; each member can choose their own event. UnRun participants can be part of your team too. The UnRun is a way that folks who cannot be at the race can still support your team and the cause.
Consider challenging others like you to form a team too (i.e. banks, churches, restaurants, etc.). We’ll let you know who had the largest and fastest teams within your category. Email Info@ReynoldsCancerSupportHouse.org to let us know who you are challenging. We’ll be posting match-ups here soon.
This event relies upon hundreds of volunteers to assist with registration, course setup, traffic control, safety and more. If you or your organization is interested in joining with us in producing this outstanding event, please contact Susan@ReynoldsCancerSupportHouse.org
