To help the Hank Kabel Sarcoma Foundation raise money and awareness for canine cancer and to honor Hank and all other dogs who have lost their battle to this devastating disease. By participating in Hank's race you, are not only raising money for dogs with cancer, but also for people with cancer, since clinical trials in dogs help decide medicines that are effective in human cancers as well.


Registration is $25/person, which will go directly to help fund canine cancer research through the foundation. Children 14 and under will be admitted free, but must be accompanied by a registered adult; children 18 and under must have a guardian sign the form for them. Registration will be accepted the day of the race for $30/person. You may also purchase race-day items - including T-shirts, bandanas and medals - through the online registration page.

"Attending helped us so much. It is a great event. You put so much work in to it and it is so appreciated. I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else. We can't wait to attend next year and bring more friends and family with us."
"Looking forward to another great year. Can't wait to work with you again."
"I want to applaud you on all of your hard work and dedication. Your website is fantastic, all of the information and videos (I watched all of your videos). Not only am I so happy and delighted to be a part of your race, but I watched and listened to your research and information on sarcoma. It makes me think this race needs to become something even bigger and nationwide!"
"Signed up again for this great cause! Run, walk with a group, walk with your pups, walk alone...just get to this event and help end canine cancer (Also, research helps with people battling cancer because trials on dogs help determine treatment options for humans). It's a great, family-friendly event!”
