Share the Lobo Cancer Challenge:

Let’s Challenge Cancer Together!

The Lobo Cancer Challenge is a fundraising event to help ensure that the people of New Mexico have access to world-class cancer care and treatments based on the most advanced cancer research. Become a Challenger — ride with us in the 25-, 50-, or 100-mile bike rides, or run or walk in the 5K. Every dollar raised by our Challengers goes to support pilot programs for research and support services for patients at the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center— because no one should have to face cancer alone.

How Can You Get Involved?

Register today to raise funds with your commitment to ride, run or walk. Donate to a Challenger. Give of your time as a volunteer, or sponsor part of the event. Bring along your family, team, company and community, because cancer affects us all. See all of the ways you can be a part of the Lobo Cancer Challenge.
