Reign Over Cancer Walk & 5K Run

Katy, TX

Join the GEST Foundation to celebrate cancer survivors and remember loved ones no longer with us. Money raised will fund grants to allow cancer patients the opportunity to focus on healing.



The mission of the GEST Foundation is to make a difference in the lives of those diagnosed with cancer during their journey to recovery by providing emotional, spiritual, and financial support. The 2nd Annual Reign Over Cancer Walk & 5K Run will raise funds to provide grants to cancer patients to purchase services to help while recovering from surgery, including grocery delivery, transportation to and from post-op medical appointments and treatments, and personal caregivers to assist with daily activities.

The ROC Walk & 5K Run will be held at Cane Island on Saturday, February 16, 2019. Race Day registration and Packet Pickup will open at 6:30 a.m. and the 5K Run will begin at 8:00 a.m. The walk portion of the event will begin immediately after the runners clear the start line.

Afterwards, stay for the post-race party and enjoy free food and drinks. Fun games and activities will be on-site for the kiddos. The ROC Walk & 5K Run will be fun for all ages!
