IMT Des Moines Marathon

Join us for a morning of camaraderie, running, and fundraising! To participate, we encourage all to run, volunteer or donate to Children’s Cancer Connection friends and families who are hitting the pavement this fall!

Children's Cancer Connection is excited to announce the third year of formally partnering with the IMT Des Moines Marathon to create #TeamCCC focused on running and raising funds for the families we serve! We need YOUR help to make this event bigger and better than years before! Participate in our QGiv fundraising and you'll receive a free registration for ANY event during the marathon weekend! Plus, the more money you raise for #TeamCCC, the more awesome prizes you'll receive.

Our partnership with the IMT Des Moines Marathon is simple. We'll help you set up a personal fundraising page on our behalf to support your run for #TeamCCC. After you raise $75, we'll give you a code for free registration for ANY event during the marathon weekend (5K, 5-Mile, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon, and Full Marathon). Raise $150 and you'll receive an official 2018 #TeamCCC race shirt. The more money you raise, the more fun items you'll receive!
