Fundraising

Whether it be screening tools to assist with an earlier diagnosis, innovative treatment options for those currently facing cancer or a support system for the entire family, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation is committed to funding organizations through the D-backs Race Against Cancer that are making a real difference for Arizona's cancer warriors. We are challenging you, D-backs fans, to help us make a positive change in the lives of those impacted by cancer. Whether you are able to join us on April 5 or not, set a personal fundraising goal in honor or memory of someone who has faced or is currently facing cancer or just because you believe in the cause.

Directions & Parking

PLEASE PLAN FOR HEAVY TRAFFIC. There will be more than 5,000 runners, volunteers and spectators in attendance on race day, which can lead to congestion on roads and at parking garages and lots.

1 Mile Family Fun Walk recommended arrival time is 7:30 a.m.

Post-Race

Runners and walkers will have access to an interactive Wellness Zone, complete with D-backs partners and non-profit organizations that will provide the latest information on nutrition, exercise and cancer screening. All participants will also have the opportunity to do a victory lap around the field inside Chase Field. Check back closer to the event date for a listing of Wellness Zone vendors.

Awards & Proceeds

All participants who cross the finish line will receive a commemorative medal at the finish line.

Prizes will be awarded during a special pre-game ceremony prior to a pre-determined D-backs game at Chase Field to the top three male and top three female finishers in each of the following age categories for the 5K:

  • 12 & Under

The overall top male and female finisher for the 5K will have the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch prior to that select game. The first pitch date is determined by the Arizona Diamondbacks and is non-negotiable. If the overall top male finisher or the overall top female finisher for the 5K Race are not available on the selected date, the participant with the next best time will be given the opportunity.

Proceeds

All proceeds from the D-backs Race Against Cancer will benefit the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and will be earmarked for programs and non-profits that provide screening, treatment and support for those dealing with cancer.

Out of abundance of caution with the COVID-19 situation, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation is postponing the 2020 D-backs Race Against Cancer.

We are working on date options to reschedule the D-backs Race Against Cancer. As soon as we have a new date and additional details, we will communicate with fans via email, social media and our website at dbacks.com/race.

Thank you for your understanding.
