Celebrating Cancer Survivors

When you see a ‘SURVIVOR’ bib on race day at the Davis Stampede, that’s  that’s a participant in our Cancer Survivor special division. This category recognizes people who have battled or are currently battling a cancer diagnosis (any type). Athletes in this division are invited to pre and post race hospitality at the Cancer Champions booths and are also eligible to win a special division medal.

Thank you to @cancerchampionsorg for providing support to these athletes!
