Race Day

Calgary, it’s not good-bye. We’ll see you soon.

After this year, Pancreatic Cancer Canada (PCC) is taking over the organizing role for Kathy’s Run. As a committee of volunteers, we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieve since we started this run nine years ago. This race has grown so much over the years, but so have the commitments in our lives. While we’re no longer able to manage the race, PCC is keen to keep it going. We’ve been working closely with PCC and we’ll be focusing our efforts on where it all started, in Edmonton. PCC hopes to bring the event back to Calgary in the future, once they’ve learned the ropes.

We encourage any of our past participants to join us in Edmonton and continue to support pancreatic cancer research.
