Winship Win the Fight 5K

The annual Winship Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk supports the ground breaking research and outstanding patient care at Winship Cancer Institute.

The Winship Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk is a family-friendly event held on the Emory University campus and benefitting cancer research at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.

In 2019, the ninth annual event raised more than $809,000 with over 3,500 participants. To date, the event has raised over $5.7 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 10th annual Winship Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020. Registration will open in late March/early April 2020.

The 9th annual Winship Win the Fight 5K highlighted great team spirit and community. Nicki Collen, head coach of the Atlanta Dream women’s basketball team, served as Grand Marshal.

Be a Winship Warrior

Once registration opens, become a Winship Warrior and join us in the Winship Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk! You can create a team or join the Winship 5K as an individual. We invite you to set a $250 minimum fundraising goal and encourage your friends, family and co-workers to join you in making a difference in the fight against cancer.

You can target your tax-deductible donation to any number of Winship cancer funds based on your personal interests.

You do not have to race to raise money for the cause. You can join us in our efforts by registering as a 'Virtual' Warrior. Virtual Warrior registration is for those who want to fundraise and support the Winship 5K even though they are not attending the event.
