The 7th Annual Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium comes to the Bronx, New York on Sunday, November 15. The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation will host the event and 100% of the proceeds go directly to cancer research and cancer scientists.

The 5K course runs throughout Yankee Stadium including up the stairs between the levels, twice around the warning track and through the stadium’s concourses and ramps. Runners will be showcased on the center field video board and will be allowed to meet the scientists funded by Damon Runyon in November.

You have children? No problem, the Damon Runyon Cancer Foundation has also kicked off the Kinds Fun Run event allow children between the ages of five and 12 years old to take one lap around the warning track before the actual 5K begins.
