Our mission is to end pancreatic cancer.


Beginning in 2009 after the passing of our namesake, Polly, our goal at Polly’s Run has been to raise awareness of this terrible disease and money for research to defeat it. Two simple goals in pursuit of one big idea: defeating pancreatic cancer. For good.


Started by Polly’s best friend and her three sons, Polly’s Run is the largest fundraiser for the fight against pancreatic cancer in New Mexico. Each year, hundreds of friends, family members, and survivors run and walk to continue the fight against the disease but also to celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost and those who battle on.  


We know our mission is an ambitious one but, like Polly herself, we will never shy away from the fight. Just as Polly inspired countless students and athletes through her teaching and coaching, we will rally our local communities to increase awareness and raise funds for research.


Join us in our cause and help us end pancreatic cancer.

Thank you to our Title Sponsor!


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the tough but necessary decision to cancel the in-person Polly's Run event this year. However, our fight against pancreatic cancer continues as Polly's Run is going ALL VIRTUAL. And we hope you will join us.

When you register for the virtual run, you will receive a race t-shirt and bib in the mail. Runners and walkers can then participate "virtually" with us from wherever you are on May 30th. Participants are encouraged to share photos to spread the word via social media! 

From our family to yours: please stay safe, and we hope to see everyone virtually on May 30th!   


Polly's Run

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States. The five-year survival rate is just 10 percent. But with your help, we will one day change the course of history for pancreatic cancer.



We encourage you to support Polly’s Run through a donation, large or small; but, donating or running isn't the only way you can make an impact. Polly's Run is always looking for volunteers to help out on race day. If you would rather enjoy the event from the sidelines and watch all those crazy runners zoom by, then let us know (pollysrun@gmail.com)! Whether it's handing out water and Gatorade, directing runners where to go, or distributing medals at the finish, we would love to have you be a part of the special day.
