Winship 5K

The annual Winship 5K run/walk supports the groundbreaking research and outstanding patient care at Winship Cancer Institute.

When you join the Winship 5K, you'll support cancer research and advances in treatments that are helping patients live longer, healthier lives.

2022 Winship 5K goes virtual

Due to Hurricane lan and out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of our patients, survivors, family members, friends and sponsors, the 2022 Winship 5K event converted to a virtual event. Participants can continue to fundraise through October 31. Visit the Winship 5K website for more information. We thank you for your understanding and support of this event. Save the date for next year's Winship 5K on October 7, 2023.

While hurricane lan may have disrupted our 5K event, it will not stop our fight against cancer!
