We can’t wait until next year’s event — December 8, 2018!
Miles for Moffitt is moving! After careful consideration on how to improve this event and continue to increase funding for research, Miles for Moffitt will be relocating to a new permanent location in Downtown Tampa. This inaugural downtown event will take place on Sat., Dec. 8, 2018.
Following last year’s Miles for Moffitt race, we asked for your feedback on how to make our event better, and even more successful. The Moffitt Cancer Center Foundation heard two things loud and clear: participants would prefer a cooler climate for running and walking, and while everyone loved running or walking past the cancer center as part of the event, there was no capacity on the USF campus to increase the number of participants. This limited the amount of money that could be raised for cancer research – and ultimately a cure. Because of Tampa’s willingness to work with us on the new date and location, and since our fundraising efforts this year have been very successful, we are able to make this move a reality.
Over the past 12 years, the University of South Florida campus has been the place where the spark of a great idea became a tradition. Where hundreds of participants grew into thousands. Where thousands of dollars raised grew into millions. And as Moffitt has grown over the past 30 years, so must this event.
Our final race at USF was last year, and you helped us raise more than $1.2 million for cancer research – our biggest year ever. And with your continued support we know we can raise the bar and make a real difference in the prevention and cure of cancer. Please stay tuned for more information and directions on how to register for this year’s race. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact MilesForMoffitt@Moffitt.org.
