Johnson Cancer Research Center
1711 Claflin Rd.
Chalmers Hall, K-State Manhattan

The acclaimed statewide fitness initiative, Walk Kansas, which is organized by K-State Research & Extension, will hold its 4th Annual Walk Kansas 5K for the Fight, 1.5-Mile Fun Walk and 50-yard Kids' Fun Run on the beautiful K-State Manhattan campus on May 4, 2019, and donate all proceeds to our center! This is open to everyone, not just Walk Kansas program participants.

We are so excited for this perfect partnership! Exercise, nutrition and maintaining a healthy weight all reduce cancer risk, and Walk Kansas has helped thousands of people reach fitness goals over the years. Come run or walk to support your health AND K-State cancer research!
