PHOENIX -- The second annual D-backs Race Against Cancer presented by University of Arizona Cancer Center at St. Joseph's Hospital will take place Saturday at 7:30 a.m. MST at Chase Field.

The 5k race will begin and end at Chase Field and will wind through the streets of downtown Phoenix.

There will also be a 1-mile Banana Boat Family Fun Walk that will begin at Chase Field at 9 a.m.

All the proceeds from the event will benefit the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and will be distributed to non-profits in the state of Arizona that provide screening, treatment and support for those dealing with cancer. That includes the new Pro-State Foundation, launched earlier this week by D-backs President and CEO Derrick Hall.

Fans can still sign up for the race at dbacks.com/race. Registration for the 5k is $50, and it is $30 for adults for the walk and $5 for children 12 and under.

Participants receive a finisher medal, T-shirt, drawstring bag and ticket to a future D-backs home game.
