The Albertans Helping Albertans Virtual 5K is a virtual, province-wide fundraiser that raises funds for all 17 Alberta Health Services cancer centres.

You can participate by joining a team or as an individual and committing to run or walk 5k! You will also choose which cancer centre you would like raise funds for!

The Albertans Helping Albertans Virtual 5K is a fun way to stay active while supporting fellow Albertans facing cancer. Whether you are an avid runner, a beginner debuting your running career, or an Albertan wanting to walk to make a positive difference in your community, this event is suitable for all ages. You can participate by running on a treadmill or on your favourite path!

This virtual event can take place anytime between May 1 - May 31, 2021.
