It is great to participate in a fun event with my grandchildren and raise money for research at Fred Hutch! We look forward to it every year.

Your impact

Every step fuels lifesaving research

100% of participant-raised dollars support Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. We are funding some of the brightest minds in the world who are relentless in their pursuit to prevent, treat, and cure cancer and other diseases. And we’re just getting started.

Meet your inner fundraiser

You? Fundraise? You bet!

Last year, thousands of people just like you raised millions of dollars, one donation at a time, to fuel research and save lives. Together, we step up because we’re ready to end the suffering cancer causes. And when we ask, our communities are ready, too. So go ahead: you’ve got this. And we’re here to help.

Teamwork and community

Cheer and be cheered

Prefer to lace up on your own? That’s great! But if a team’s your thing, Obliteride teams are amazing. Last year, more than 80% of our participants joined other walkers, runners, and volunteers to boost their training, fundraising, and fun.

Safety and support

Carefully created Routes

Our family-friendly 5K is on a paved trail open only to foot and bike traffic. Our shared-road bike routes have signage, rest stops, support vehicles, and flaggers and begin with a police escort.

Rest stops and snacks

The 5K stop includes plenty of water and encouragement. Our volunteers and staff make stops a fun and healthy way to recharge.

Route assistance

Volunteers and staff are ready to help if you have any problems on the course. You can also call the emergency number on your wristband if you need assistance.

Support at every stage

From fundraising to finding the event, we’re here for you. Throughout the season, we stay in touch through emails, Participant Center resources, and more. Questions? Contact info@obliteride.org.

Our thanks to you

Gifts you’ll love and keep

We’re serious about the gifts we give our participants. Every walker and runner receives an Obliteride T-shirt; a goodie bag filled with collectible socks, a water-bottle, and other great items; food and beverages all weekend; free admission for you and a guest to our Friday Night Kickoff Party; and more.
