$1 Million Goal

WOW! Together we all helped to raise $900,000 to support research efforts to #FINISHCANCER ! Here’s to $1 Million in 2020!

The 39th Hood & Portland To Coast Relays are proud to continue our partnership with Providence Cancer Institute as the official Charity of Choice.


What if the body’s immune system could identify and destroy cancer cells?

The cancer research team at Providence has proven the immune system can fight cancer. Immunotherapy works, and we are saving more lives today than ever before. But cancer keeps finding new ways to invade and immunotherapy doesn’t work for everyone.

You can help us push the limits of research to create personalized treatments so that more people have hope – hope for more time, more moments with the people they love.
