Join the City of Schertz in the Kick Cancer Pep Rally and 5k Run, formally the Wilenchik Walk for Life, on Saturday, March 4 as the community comes together to rally in support of the many cancer research programs of the UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center.

In 2009, the city hosted the inaugural 5K event in honor of former Schertz City Councilmember, Tony Wilenchik. Tony was diagnosed in 2006 with Stage-4 Leiomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer. Tony’s determination to face the disease head-on motivated the city to create a fundraising event to help support cancer research. Since the walk began, more than $193,000 has been raised and donated to the UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center to aid in their research.

Kick Cancer will allow participants to celebrate cancer research, remember family members lost to cancer, and honor those still fighting.
