Who are TeamAICR Members?

TeamAICR members come from all over the country, and from all walks of life, but they all have one thing in common: a deep commitment to ending cancer. Many of our members have personally been affected by cancer and it has made a lasting impact on their lives. By joining TeamAICR, you're not just running a race, you're taking action and working toward a cancer-free future.

Runner's World magazine and marathoner Scott Spitz has chosen AICR as an official charity beneficiary. Read his incredible story and how you can help support cancer research through AmazonSmile.
