DUNN WITH CANCER
A MOVEMENT OF HOPE
2022 DUNN WITH CANCER REGISTRATION: NOW OPEN
Registration for the 3rd Annual DUNN with Cancer run, taking place on September 17th, 2022 in support of glioblastoma research, is now open. This year, there will be a 5km run/walk at 1pm and 4pm, along with a BBQ for all runners, walkers and spectators, in addition to the timed That Dam Hill races taking place at 8am.
New this year, we will also have a kids event taking place at 2:30pm, which will include fun games and activities. You and your family can register for the Kids Event at the same time you select your race or BBQ timeslot.
At the start of 2020, Allison was living her best life - a 33 year old mother of three young kids who dedicated her work to helping those less fortunate in the Kitchener-Waterloo community, Allison was doing exactly what she was meant to do.
This all changed in February 2020 when Allison was diagnosed with grade 4 glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. And when 6 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation treatment had minimal impacts on her symptoms, Allison passed away peacefully on June 17th, 2020, 4 months less a day after the tumour was discovered.
The DUNN with Cancer run is for Allison. The DUNN with Cancer run is also for each person who has been or will be impacted by glioblastoma.
The DUNN with Cancer mission is a simple one: We want to live in a world where glioblastoma is treatable and, eventually, curable.
Thanks to our partners at the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, 100% of the donations to the DUNN With Cancer Research Fund will go towards glioblastoma research so that one day we will achieve our goal.
So far, together we have raised $450,000 for brain cancer research, which has already been used to sponsor two grants with a fellowship announcement coming soon. View Our Impact to see how your generosity has been put to use.

After successful runs in 2020 and 2021, we will be back with the third annual DUNN with Cancer Run in 2022! After all, Allison would not have stopped after two runs, so we won't either!
We are excited to share that, in partnership with That Dam Hill, the DUNN with Cancer Run will be taking place on Saturday, September 17th, 2022 in Springbank Park, London, ON.
Like last year, there will be two 5km Run/Walks in memory of Allison starting at 1pm and 4pm, in addition to a spectator BBQ. New this year, there will also be a kids event at 2:30, with fun games and activities. You and your family can register for the Kids Event at the same time you select your race or BBQ timeslot.
There are also timed races available beginning at 8am, with registration open on the That Dam Hill website. The timed races include the half marathon, marathon (relay) and 24 hour (relay).
