Keep the Spirit

We are back Niagara!

The 2022 Rankin Cancer Run will be our first virtual event! You can register as an individual or team in order to be able to solicit online donations and keep track of them. This means you choose your own starting line, your own starting time and whether you want to go it alone or join a group of friends. The only thing we ask is that your run or walk take place at some point in the month of May.

WHOOPEE, Niagara your spirit is amazing... we hit $10 million!!! Our warmest and deepest thanks.


Now, let us continue to raise more and give back to our region!


So how does the virtual run work? (Surprisingly, it is very similar to previous years):

1. Registration:

  • You can register individually or as a team. The registration fee is $20.00 per individual or $10.00 per student (keep in mind the registration fee is waived if you have collected donations of $100.00 or more)
  • Online registration is already open
  • You can also register at the preregistration event in April

2. Collect additional sponsors and donations:

  • Download the registration form. This can be used to manually register an individual and to collect additional sponsors and donations.
  • Please keep in mind that tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20.00 or more
  • Any donations online receive an emailed tax receipt

3. Pre-registration event - Sat. Apr 23 and Sun. Apr 24:

  • from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. —— at 218 Martindale Road directly beside Rankin Construction on Martindale Road in St. Catharines. During that time online registrants can pick up their pre ordered t shirts and race bibs. At that time we will also be offering in person registration, but please note, that shirts and bibs will only be available while supplies last. NO TEAM NAMES WILL BE PRINTED ON THE SHIRTS.

4. Complete your virtual 1km or 5km walk or run at any point in the month of May

5. If you have any additional donations after preregistration, kindly mail them by May 30th to:

  • Rankin Cancer Run, P.O. Box 20093, St. Catharines, L2M 7W7


And don’t forget if you are registering as a team: schools can challenge schools, businesses can challenge businesses and families can challenge families. See 2019 Team Results – Schools | Corporate and Community
