Join us for the ManchVegas 5K! Run with Elvis and celebrate all that the “big city of New Hampshire” has to offer, on Saturday, July 27th. Join the fun at Manchester’s best new road race, where you can celebrate your finish by tasting craft beers from around the United States at the Manchester Brewfest!

First 500 registrants will receive an Elvis wig. All runners and spectators can “try their luck” to win great prizes. You won’t want to miss it, and what happens in this Vegas will be talked about for a long time.

About Our Organization

Formed in 1982, The Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Funds raised by The Friends go directly to support experimental work by creative investigators, allowing them to start the kind of research that can yield new knowledge and new therapies. The Friends also provides crucial funding for technologically-advanced equipment, patient services programs and educational outreach efforts. The Friends 5K celebrates and supports the courage of cancer patients and survivors everywhere. Please join us in raising money to help find a cure for cancer.
