The Community Cancer Center will host the 6th annual Focus on Hope 5k and 1mile run/walk on Saturday.
The event will be held at the CCC campus on Stewart Parkway and opens with day-of-event registration at 7:30 a.m. The races take place starting at 9:00 a.m.
The event began in 2014 as an effort to bring awareness to breast cancer risks and early screening resources that are available in Douglas County. Since then the event has expanded to include all cancers and risk awareness. This year there is an additional 1-mile route, a kids 50-yard dash, and a pet parade.
The CCC release said 100% of the funds raised from Focus on Hope remain in Douglas County.
