In 2017, the seventh annual event raised over $990,000 with over 3,400 participants. To date, the event has raised over $4.3 million in support of cancer research at Winship Cancer Institute. On the day of the event, runners and walkers tackle the Peachtree Road Race qualifying course that starts and ends on the Emory campus and winds its way through the surrounding Druid Hills-area. Teams are encouraged to organize and to take part in the event.
The 8th annual Winship Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Registration will open in late spring.
