Let’s give cancer the boot!
Register today and join us online and in your neighborhood on Saturday, Nov. 6.
Join us on Saturday, Nov. 6 for MD Anderson’s Boot Walk to End Cancer®. Cancer doesn't care what kind of boots you wear. It affects everyone. Every day at MD Anderson Cancer Center 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 host this year’s sixth annual Boot Walk to End Cancer virtually, and we hope you will join us, no matter where you are.
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 MD Anderson’s mission, including patient programs, research, prevention and education initiatives. Thanks to our presenting sponsor, LyondellBasell, 100% of funds raised by participants directly advance MD Anderson's mission to end cancer. There is no registration fee. We encourage all participants to fundraise with no minimum fundraising requirement.
Share your story and your commitment to #EndCancer. All ages are welcome to participate. There's fun for the entire family!
