The AmpUp! Walk/Run to End Bladder Cancer is the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network's national grassroots fundraising and awareness initiatives that help support the BCAN mission: to increase public awareness about bladder cancer, advance bladder cancer research, and provide educational and support services for the bladder cancer community. These volunteer driven events are grass roots, fundraising and awareness events that give voice to those who have lost their lives because of bladder cancer.
The purpose of this event is to increase bladder cancer awareness, support those living with this disease, and raise funds to find a cure. What began in 2011 as a national Walk for Bladder Cancer, in 2016 expanded to 41locations across 29 states and engaged nearly 4,000 participants. For 2017, we will build on our momentum and maximize our impact while raising needed funds for education, awareness and research.
