Let's give cancer the boot
Register today and join us on Nov. 11
Cancer doesn’t care what kind of boots you wear. It affects everyone. This is something we know all too well at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Every day we're focused on Making Cancer History® for our patients and their loved ones. We're supporting patients throughout their cancer journeys, and we're hard at work advancing research discoveries to slow, stop or prevent cancer.
Join your community to raise funds and help end cancer. On Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017, put on your favorite pair of boots—cowboy, rain, combat, desert or others—and join thousands at the Boot Walk. Together, we'll give cancer the boot!
The Boot Walk follows a short, 1.2 mile route in the heart of the Texas Medical Center. All ages are welcome to participate. There's fun for the entire family!
There's no registration fee to join. We want everyone to have the opportunity to participate, and show their support for MD Anderson and our fight to end cancer. All funds raised support our bold mission: To eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation and the world.
Thousands participated in the first Boot Walk to End Cancer, which was held in 2016.
One hundred percent of funds raised directly support MD Anderson's mission to end cancer.
Many people participated in groups, including teenagers.

Some participants took it a step further and added fun socks!
Nearly 7,000 people made the 1.2-mile walk.
Anyone can participate in the Boot Walk -- no matter their age.
Some groups wore matching outfits.
The 2016 Boot Walk to End Cancer raised more than $980,000.
