COVID-19 Update

Join us for the first VIRTUAL Rex Lee Run!

Brigham Young University's Simmons Center for Cancer Research is committed to the health and safety of our students, staff, and every community member who attends our Cougs Vs Cancer Rex Lee Run.

Concerns related to COVID-19 have affected every part of society. After careful consideration of the present circumstances, Church Educational System (CES) leadership has decided to temporarily restrict all large gatherings on campus. For more information, please click here for the official CES statement and click here for BYU's official statement.

To this end, we will be making adjustments to this year's run. The race will now be a virtual experience, and we invite all to participate! Here’s how:

- Register for the race here .
- Receive your t-shirt and bib in the mail.
- Do a 5K anytime between March 28th- April 30th Run anywhere! Be creative!
- Post a video or picture of your run on using #yirun and tag @rexleerun.

While we are disappointed to cancel our community event, our mission remains the same: to raise funds for full-time student cancer research fellowships, providing BYU undergraduate and graduate students the chance to begin their careers as the next generation of cancer clinicians and researchers.

Follow us on Instagram @rexleerun to get updated details about the race.

Covid-19 is throwing us a curve ball but we’re running with it!
