FranConnect Fighting Cancer Walk

Walk for helping cancer research in Washington, DC

FranConnect Fighting Cancer Walk

Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.

SU2C is bringing together the best and the brightest researchers and encouraging collaboration instead of competition among the entire cancer community. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C creates awareness and builds broad public support for this effort.


Cancer takes one person every minute. One life in a moment. They are our brothers, our sisters, our fathers and mothers, our husbands and wives, our best friends, our children, ourselves. Every day in America 1500 people die despite the fact that the means to save them are literally within our reach. To wait any longer for someone else to save our lives and the lives of those we love is unforgivable. We must act now.

For the first time in history, we can envision the possibility of stopping cancer in its tracks. Now more than ever, as government funding for cancer research is disappearing from the national agenda, every single one of us affected by cancer must stand up and be heard.


No need to feel helpless and wish you could do more for our warriors! There are a wide range of charitable organizations that accept donations but today there is a FREE fitness app, Charity Miles, that lets charities cash in while you walk, run or bike. Charity Miles self funded and covered the initial $1 million. Founder, Gene Gurkoff works tirelessly to gain as many athletes on the platform as possible, to entice future corporate sponsors. By sponsoring users' runs and rides, the corporations have a unique way to connect with consumers.
