Run for CDH1


Friday, September 3, 2021, 7:00 am to Monday, September 6, 2021, 7:00 pm


Virtual Run/Walk

Run for CDH1 is virtual run/walk (5K, 10K, and half marathon). You can do this anytime between Sept 3 (7:00 a.m.) and Sept 6 (7:00 p.m.). The goal of this race is to raise awareness about genetic testing. I and one of my three siblings tested positive for CDH1, a gene that can cause stomach and breast cancer, saving both our lives. You can read my story on Facebook.

Proceeds from this event will benefit genetic testing, cancer research, and cancer patient funds..

This is not a Michigan Medicine hosted event, it is an independent community fundraising event hosted by an individual or organization in the community with proceeds benefiting Michigan Medicine.
