The twelfth annual West Fight On, a walk, run, and cycling event to raise funds for the West Cancer Foundation, is scheduled for September 7, 2024, at Shelby Farms Park. With a mission to break through barriers to cancer care and improve patient outcomes, West Cancer Foundation aims to provide accessible patient resources, early detection and education, and research to improve health inequities. The nonprofit organization provides free cancer services to those in need, including cancer screenings, transportation to and from treatment appointments, lymphedema garments, and post-mastectomy prostheses, garments, and wigs.

West Fight On, Memphis’ largest cancer survivor event, is sponsored by Sedgwick and First Horizon Foundation. The annual fundraising event has raised over $2 million to provide free cancer services, benefiting more than 8,700 in our community.
West Fight On offers a diverse range of activities to cater to different interests and fitness levels. It features three different cycling routes — 20, 40 and 60 mile — a 5K run/walk, and a one-mile tribute walk. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist, a casual runner, or simply want to show your support with a leisurely walk, there’s something for everyone at West Fight On.

“Every year, we’re thrilled to see more and more of our community come together and participate in West Fight On,” said Leighanne Soden, West Cancer Foundation President. “Whether it’s cycling, running, walking, or just attending to enjoy the festivities, we have something for everyone. It’s wonderful to see so many passionate people come together to support our mission, celebrate their cancer victories, or honor a loved one.”
