Share the Lobo Cancer Challenge

Donations accepted through Sept. 30

Challenging 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. Challengers committed to ride in 25-, 50-, or 100-mile bike rides, or run or walk in a 5K. With their commitment, 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.

Sharing makes us stronger

Family, friends, loved ones, colleagues, teams, company and community came together because cancer affects us all. Thank you to everyone for your fundraising efforts and for sharing a wonderful day of rising to the challenge on Saturday.

Challengers are still raising funds for their program of choice that supports cancer patient care or advanced research. >>> Find a Challenger and donate to support their ride, run or walk.

We look forward to sharing more with you
