Calling all cancer survivors and supporters!

On this day all around the globe, people living with a history of cancer come together to connect, celebrate milestones and recognize those who have supported them along the way. From the newly diagnosed to decades-long survivors, to family members and medical professionals, join us for food, fun and hopefully some sun!

For cancer survivors and their loved ones: no need to register this year; just show up and enjoy.  

This year’s event brings in the popular 5K walk/run Give Us 5, founded by a local cancer survivor. The walk/run is comprised of three loops around the Good Sam campus, on paved terrain. All proceeds from the event benefit local patients with cancer.

Walkers and runnersClick here to register for the 5K! Cost is $25 for adults; $15 for kids ages 6 to 17; and free for kids 0-5. You’ll get a T-shirt with your paid registration. 

The 5K starts at 9 a.m. on June 4. Stick around after the 5K and party with the cancer survivors you support, from 11:30 to 1:30.

Survivors Know How to Party

This year marks the mid-valley’s fifth annual National Cancer Survivors Day celebration where we spoil our survivors and their loved ones, with FREE:

  • Car wash
  • Massage
  • Giveaways
  • Lunch
  • Art activities
  • Face painting and bounce house for kids and kids-at-heart
  • Joy! 

CEO of Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center Becky Pape will speak at the event, as well as Lebanon Mayor and cancer survivor Paul Aziz.

Cancer survivorship is defined from the day of diagnosis forward, including decades-long survivors. The event is also open to cancer survivors who were treated elsewhere.
