Um…What is Beat the Banana?

Beat the Banana events are fundraisers to benefit the Institute’s research and education programs held all over the world by organizations and work places.

Participants sign up and raise money for cancer research and have a special event day that ends with a race.

The participants race a designated "banana" (in a banana suit of course) and the winners receive prizes. The designated "banana" can be anyone but most organizations find it the most fun when it is their president or leader.

Check out this year's Informa Offices' Fundraising Page.
