Shane’s cancer experience is one reason he serves as the Race Director for the Cupcake 5K. The Cupcake5K race has been part of Relay for Life in the past. Shane has generously shared the race proceeds with the Outer Banks Hospital Development Council Cancer Care Fund this year, focusing more on helping local initiatives here on the Outer Banks.

The Cancer Care Fund provides free breast and lung cancer screenings for people without insurance to pay for the tests. The fund also provides support programs for cancer patients, including, but not limited to, Chair Yoga, Look Good, Feel Better, Wig Program and so much more.

Registration for the 2016 Cupcake 5K will open in November. The race will be held over Memorial Day Weekend, Sunday May 29th.
