Keep the Spirit

The 2020 Rankin Cancer Run is cancelled...Our volunteer Rankin Run committee members and Rankin Construction are sending out an enormous thank you to all of the incredibly kind individuals who have, for months now, been registering their teams, themselves, and offering to volunteer for our event this year. It is all because of our incredible region and far beyond, that $9,817,000.00 has been raised and $9,817,000 returned to our own Niagara in our 14 years. You all will continue to absolutely overwhelm us, and we are grateful beyond words.

We are officially cancelling our 15th Rankin Cancer Run on Saturday May 23rd. Our 15th event instead will be celebrated next year, on Saturday May 29, 2021. We will have some wonderful 15 year anniversary shirts to wear proudly. We also thank a great many, for their excitement and tremendous interest in holding a virtual 15th year Rankin Cancer Run. This virtual fundraiser will also not take place. This is now the time in all of our lives to completely focus on continuing to pull together and fight the evil COVID-19 virus. It is of primary importance that we all take care of each other by doing every single thing that is being asked of us, by the leaders of our country.

We send a giant shout out in particular to our incredible students who each year, along with our cancer survivors, are our Rankin Cancer Run heroes. Continue now please while you are at home, to share your hearts, your enthusiasm and your kindness. Please stay safe, stay isolated in your own homes, and assist with household chores, while staying positive and making each and every single day special for your families.

Our warmest and deepest thanks.
