The Huntsman Sports Festival returns for its third year of bringing cyclists and runners together to raise funds for research at Huntsman Cancer Institute. Huntsman Cancer Foundation (HCF) combined its iconic Huntsman 140 cycling ride with its 5K and kids’ run in 2017 to create the Huntsman Sports Festival, a single-day event that provides participants with more ways to get involved. HCF has added a 10K trail run to the 2019 event. The Huntsman 140 includes distance options of 25, 50, 75, and 140 miles with a relay option for the 140-mile courses.
To date, the Huntsman 140 and the Huntsman 5k have raised a combined 3.8 million dollars for cancer research. This year’s fundraising goal is $750,000, with one hundred percent of funds raised going to vital research for all types of cancer.
Huntsman Cancer Foundation’s sole purpose is to raise funds to support the mission of Huntsman Cancer Institute, which is to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of cancer treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care.
