What Is AmpUp! Walk/Run to End Bladder Cancer?
AmpUp! Walk/Run to End Bladder Cancer is the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network's national grassroots fundraising and awareness walk program that helps 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, fundraising and awareness events give voice to those who are going through their bladder cancer journey, are bladder cancer survivors, or have lost their lives because of this devastating disease.
Why is there a registration fee?
While the walk is an important event to raise awareness, it is also the only major fundraiser for the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network. The registration fee supports the costs for the walk t-shirts, insurance, giveaways, technology, etc. and ensures that we can continue to fund important education, support and research programs.
