Walk Away From Cancer

Walk Away From Cancer is an exciting fundraising event being held in Newark, DE September 28th - October 2nd, 2015. Teams of participants will compete for “most steps walked” over a five day period. The event raises awareness of steps that we all can take to reduce the risk of cancer… while also highlighting resources available to students, faculty, staff, and community members who are affected by cancer. (See “Event Information” in the left menu bar for more about the event.)

Funds raised by Walk Away From Cancer will support Cancer Care Connection (, a Newark-based, non-profit counseling and information service for people affected by cancer. (Click “About Us” in the left menu bar to find out more about our services and impact).

Help us Walk Away From Cancer by participating as a Walker, sponsoring a Walker, or becoming an Event Sponsor.

The competition for the most steps taken is split between two types of teams - University and Community. Participants will compete within the category that matches their type of team.

Teams are defined as follows:
University teams include students, staff and faculty affiliated with University of Delaware or other university.

Community teams include members of the community at large. If a team is made up of a combination of university and community members, the team must register as a Community team.

Participants will specify their type of team when they register for the Step Tracker.

All teams compete against each other, regardless of type, for the most funds raised and steps taken.
