Last June, Excel hosted the first annual Heroes Vs. Cancer 5k.

All proceeds support the Coaches vs. Cancer program of The American Cancer Society. This event celebrates survivors, remembers and honors those we have lost, and fights back so that no one loses another family member, friend, or loved one to this disease. All 5k participants will receive a race t-shirt.

The Philadelphia Coaches vs. Cancer School and Youth Initiative is a program designed to encourage student-athletes, coaches, fans, parents, athletic directors, and local communities to make an impact in the fight against cancer. Any community member or business can be a part of the Coaches vs. Cancer program. 

What is Coaches vs. Cancer and the American Cancer Society doing in your community?

  • Hospitals in Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs are funded by over $15 million in American Cancer Society (ACS) research grants.

  • Last year, more than 26,000 nights of free or reduced cost lodging were provided to a patient and their caregiver who had to travel to Philadelphia for treatment.

  • A Full-Time Patient Navigator at CHOP is fully funded by ACS to ensure patients and their families know where to turn after their child is diagnosed with cancer.

  • More than 30,000 rides to and from treatment for patients without a ride.
