What is Team CONQUER Cancer?
Team CONQUER Cancer is a group made up of interested members of the community, cancer survivors, their families and friends, who want to get active and be part of a team while supporting the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center at Howard County General Hospital. Team members inspire one another in preparing for and participating in athletic events of all types. It doesn’t matter if you walk, jog, run, bike, swim or hike; the team is open to ALL ability levels, from absolute beginners to ultra tri-athletes. The most important thing is to get moving & get healthy!

For the Iron Girl Half Marathon & Co-Ed 5K in April, we’ll need over 50 Volunteers. We’ll also need Volunteers for the Triathlons as well. If you would like to help the team, we have various opportunities. Please call 410-740-7570, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
