UTMB United

One Cause - One Team!

UTMB team captains Dr. David and Mrs. Tonya Callender are collaborating with the UTMB Cancer Center to spearhead this year's UTMB team for the Susan G.

UTMB Cancer Center programs have received more than $4.6 million in Komen funding, providing mammogram screenings, diagnostic services, and patient navigation for thousands of women over the last 9 years. Efforts to build a strong UTMB Cancer Center presence to show our support at the event on October 5th are underway and we need your support, so please join with us as ONE TEAM United!!!!

Any UTMB employee, family member, friend or volunteer is invited to join the team, called "Cruisin' for a Cure". Click here to join the "UTMB Cancer Center-Cruisin' for a Cure". The fee to walk or run in the race is $35; the fee for a timed runner is $40; and the fee for cancer survivors is $30. UTMB will be providing complimentary handsome logo shirts to all members of the team.
