Nearly $1.6 MILLION Raised to Date

Founded in 1979, the Edward I. Moses Walk/Run for Life has been a leader in raising money for the local fight against cancer. Thanks to the sponsorship of local businesses we are able to reward participants with prizes, goodie bags and t-shirts while still keeping proceeds from the event in St. Lawrence County. This event is the primary fundraiser for the St. Lawrence County Cancer Fund which provides funding for programs that work to educate the community and help with the prevention, early detection and diagnosis of cancer for local residents. 

Listed below are the programs supported by the funds raised during the Walk/Run with a brief description of the services they provide to those in the community. For more information, contact Kellie Hitchman at (315) 244-1801. 

Event Details


The Edward I. Moses Walk/Run for Life is a non-competitive walk/run to raise money for the fight against cancer in St. Lawrence County. Our goal this year is to collectively raise over $75,000.


Sunday, April 29th, 2018.


Registration from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. Official start at 11:00 a.m.

Grand Prize Ceremony at 1:00 p.m.


Appleton Arena, St. Lawrence University, Canton.

Start, finish, health fair, music provided and Grand Prize Ceremony will all be held at the arena.

The walk/run route covers 1-10 miles on the St. Lawrence Campus, either Ferguson Trail (1.0 mile per lap, 1.3 miles per woods loop) or on the outdoor track (.25 miles per lap).


Anyone can participate with a minimum $25 entry or sponsor fee. Your registration is paid by making your first donation to your campaign. You can walk, run, jog, push a stroller, etc. You can choose to participate individually or as a group. Participants who raise $50 will receive an event t- shirt. 


Participants may raise funds online OR collect donations in person. Participants should explain to sponsors how many miles they plan to complete, as donations are made on participation, not as a pledge-per-mile.

Donations received in person are to be handed in April 30th before the event start in order to be counted toward the participant’s total for the event.

Every sponsor of your participation for at least $20 will be entitled to one similar commemorative T-shirt that you are responsible for distributing. They can be picked up at registration.
