VIRTUAL RACE: The 25th Annual Sprint for Life 5K and Sprint for Sprouts Kids' Run will be virtual again as part of MD Anderson’s proactive measures to prevent the introduction or spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Make a difference in the fight against ovarian cancer!

This year will mark the 25th anniversary of the event and we are planning to celebrate survivors and their family members as well as the community in a special way. 

Founded in 1998, Sprint for Life has two missions:  to raise awareness and research funds for ovarian cancer. Hosted by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Sprint for Life has raised more than $5.7 million for the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program, one of the world's leading efforts dedicated to ovarian cancer research.  Funding has allowed researchers to develop new clinical trials, understand the biology of ovarian cancer and develop new therapies for the disease.

Free registration for the first 100 Ovarian Cancer Survivors and the first 100 Caregivers of Ovarian Cancer Survivors - courtesy of OVARCOME.  Contact the Sprint for Life offices at gynonccommunityrelations@mdanderson.org for details.

What’s a virtual 5K?

  • A virtual 5K takes place anywhere you like.  You can complete it on a treadmill, riding a bike, running track or wherever you like within the two week time frame of May 7-21 allowed this event.         
  • You can still raise funds for ovarian cancer research and have your shirt and new for this year, custom race medal mailed to you.
    To receive your shirt by "race day," May 7, you MUST register by April 15. Anyone that registers after April 16 may receive their shirt after May 7. 
  • If you register early you can wear your shirt on Saturday, May 7th and join the virtual 5K by posting photos of yourselves wearing your Sprint for Life shirt to social media. 
  • Participants may use hashtag #endcancer in their posts or tag MD Anderson’s social media accounts.
