The Cougs vs Cancer Rex Lee Run for a Cure has been a strong annual tradition at BYU since 1990. Now in its 24th year, it includes a 5K, a 10K, and a 1K Fun Run. It is a race to raise funds for BYU students to do breaking research in the field of cancer, with fellowships focused at the Simmons Center for Cancer Research, and sponsored at top universities around the country. The race honors Rex E. Lee, former President of BYU and founding Dean of the J. Reuben Clark Law School, who passed away due to cancer.
The run is hosted by the Simmons Center for Cancer Research with the help of the BYU Cougars vs Cancer group. The race provides not only an opportunity to recognize the cancer fighters in our own lives but presents an opportunity to support cancer research in our own community. 100% of ALL PROCEEDS from race registrations go to funding cancer research fellowships through the BYU Simmons Center for Cancer Research.
A Community Event!
Prior to the start of the race, Opening Ceremonies will be held to honor all those--researchers and doctors, patients and families alike--who are battling cancer. Following the 1K Fun Run there will be a Cancer Wellness Carnival including inflatables and prizes free to all community members regardless of participation in the race. This fair will be simultaneous to the races and will continue throughout and after the runners come through the finish line. Sign up today to join BYU's fight against cancer!
