AmpUp! Walk/Run to End Bladder Cancer


new-piktochart_548_b88c03ffd21463865336d31cfa2dc6a9952e42bdCelebrating at the finish line!This spring 2017 the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) community will be participating in the AmpUp! Walk/Run to End Bladder Cancer event. One in 42 people will be diagnosed with bladder cancer during their lifetime. Although bladder cancer is a common cancer, it has been vastly ignored. We need a cure now! The purpose of this event is to increase bladder cancer awareness, support those living with this disease, and raise funds to find a cure. What began in 2011 as a national Walk for Bladder Cancer, in 2016 expanded to 41 locations across 29 states and engaged nearly 4,000 participants.  For 2017, we will build on our momentum and maximize our impact while raising needed funds.

Get involved – it only takes a few minutes!

Having fun!With more than half a million Americans living with bladder cancer and nearly 77,000 new cases expected to be diagnosed this year, it is imperative that patients become better informed about their disease through free access to education and patient support services. By participating in the AmpUp! Walk/Run to End Bladder Cancer, you will enable us to ensure support is available for everyone diagnosed with bladder cancer.

BCAN is the voice for the bladder cancer community! Won’t you help us continue to fight on behalf of bladder cancer patients and their caregivers as well as survivors? Participate in AmpUp! to improve the lives of those with bladder cancer. All charitable contributions enable us to maximize our mission!
