The 18th annual Rex Lee Run Against Cancer will take place Saturday, March 23, at the BYU Outdoor Track at Brigham Young University. Proceeds will go to the BYU Cancer Research Center to fund cancer research fellowships.

Participants can register online at rexleerun.byu.edu/register-to-run/. The cost for the run is $15 for the 5K run and $20 for the 10K run if registered on or before March 22.

Bib and T-Shirt Pickup will be available March 21-22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the BYU University Parkway Center. Participants must wait until the next business day to pick up the items after their registration.

The Rex Lee Run Against Cancer honors former BYU President Rex E. Lee, a former U.S. Solicitor General and an avid runner. Lee died of lymphoma in 1996. The first Rex Lee Run, organized by cancer survivors in his honor, was held a few weeks after his passing.
