The Oral Cancer Walk & 5K has been an annual tradition at Penn since 2009. It is created and organized entirely by students. Our mission is to raise awareness about oral cancer.
We organize a variety of fundraising activities leading up to our annual race in the Spring.
On race day, after seeing all our runners and walkers through the finish line, we provide free oral cancer screenings, hear from our organizers, advisors and speakers, and raffle off great prizes!
100% of the proceeds from fundraisers and the Walk/5K are donated to the PDM Oral Cancer fund which support oral cancer research.
