Rock the Run 2024

Welcome to the KidneyCAN Rock the Run 5k fundraising page! We’re fired up to once again laced up our shoes to walk and run for our mission: accelerating cures for kidney cancer. 

This year, you can join us in person during our research conference on July 11-12 in Boston, MA, or you can plan and participate in your own local events. Either way, your support funds vital kidney cancer research!

Last year, Rock the Run raised over $21k for research. This year, we’re aiming for $50k!

Rock the Run with us to raise money and accelerate cures for kidney cancer!

You can sign up to raise money as an individual or team, and your hometown event can be as simple or big as you want to make it. Maybe your local event is a neighborhood walk, a solo run, a bike ride, or a community hike. You can Rock the Run in any way that feels right to you!

Start planning your event by using our Fundraising Toolkit.

“The Rock the Run event was a hidden gem during this conference! It gave everyone involved a chance to get to know each other outside of the meeting environment and try to navigate the Boston street course! It was also a very good opportunity to get the researchers more involved in raising funds for our common cause.”
