About the Event
NCR Sprint for Cancer is an annual 5K/10K race and fundraising event that celebrated its 10-year anniversary during the 2012 race. NCR Sprint for Cancer actively supports children with cancer and their families by donating time and money to the Aflac Cancer Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. With the success of the past year’s race, the 11th annual race has high goals and big dreams. Sponsored by NCR Corporation, many NCR employees with their friends and family plus community neighbors and businesses will be involved in the planning, participation and giving for this cause.
