AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY:
DETERMINATION

​At the American Cancer Society, we have a vision to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. Within the DetermiNation program, we do that through all athletic endeavors, from cycling to running, hiking to yoga, and more. Our athletes help raise funds to take down cancer, and they're nothing short of amazing.

 

When you join our team, you make your miles more meaningful. Just like the hard work athletes put into event training and fundraising, ACS gives it our all through incredible research, patient supports and services, and a free 24/7 staffed helpline.

 

Together, we'll take on every course, rally every community, and remain relentless for every cancer and every life. JOIN US.

GET INVOLVED:
GREATER PHILADELPHIA

While a nationwide program, DetermiNation has incredible opportunities to support the mission and vision of the ACS right here in Greater Philadelphia!
