Thank you for giving cancer the boot!
Save the date for the 2021 Boot Walk on Nov. 6.
We are going virtual once again! Join us for The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center’s sixth annual Boot Walk to End Cancer, presented by LyondellBasell. Cancer doesn't care what kind of boots you wear. It affects everyone. This is something we know all too well at MD Anderson. Every day we are focused on Making Cancer History® for our patients and their loved ones by supporting patients throughout their cancer journeys and advancing research discoveries to slow, stop or prevent cancer.
MD Anderson continues to prioritize the safety and health of our patients, our workforce and our community. We will continue to uphold those priorities as we go virtual for the 2021 Boot Walk, and we hope you will join us.
On Saturday, Nov. 6, people around the world will walk 1.2 miles in their own neighborhoods, demonstrating that together, we can give cancer the boot! Although we won’t be walking side-by-side on MD Anderson’s campus, we remain stronger when we come together as a community committed to #EndCancer.
The Boot Walk to End Cancer is an annual fundraiser that provides support for patient programs, research, prevention and education initiatives at MD Anderson. One hundred percent of funds raised by participants directly advance MD Anderson's mission to end cancer. There is no registration fee. We encourage participants to fundraise with no minimum fundraising requirement.
Your 1.2 mile walk in the safety of your neighborhood and in the company of those in your household will be an opportunity to share your story and celebrate your success. All ages are welcome to participate. There's fun for the entire family!
