There may not be a cure for cancer, but there are certainly ways to help its sufferers. Run the Fox Chase Away Cancer 5K on August 6 and raise money for the Fox Chase Cancer Center. Ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top cancer centers in the country, FCCC has dedicated itself to cancer research, prevention, and treatment since 1974. Proceeds from the event, which includes a 1.5 mile walk and half-mile kids’ Fun Run in Jenkintown, will also benefit the HCM Foundation Scholarship Program. HCM awards $1,000 each year to high school seniors entering their first year of college who have been seriously affected by cancer.

$25, August 6, 9 a.m., Saint Basil Academy, 711 Fox Chase Road.
