BYU Rex Lee Run
Organized again, in 1996, to honor former BYU President Rex E. Lee who passed away that year as a result of cancer, the Rex Lee Run run continues to be sponsored by the Simmons Center for Cancer Research with the help of the BYU Cancer Awareness Group. The BYU Cancer Awareness Grou is a student club of those who are interested in raising public awareness about cancer, assisting those who are dealing with this illness, and seeking cures for this disease by raising money for cancer research. The run provides not only an opportunity to recognize the cancer fighters in our own lives, but presents an opportunity to support cancer research in our own community. The proceeds from the race go to fund cancer research fellowships at the BYU Simmons Center for Cancer Research.
The race will take runners through the BYU campus, including a lap around the outside of Lavell Edwards Stadium and will feature plenty of water stations for both the 5K and 10K courses.
