Raising Awareness of HPV-Related Cancers

According to the CDC, based on data from 2014 – 2018, about 46,143 new cases of cancer are associated with HPV in the US each year: 25,719 among women, and 20,424 among men. HPV is associated with 6 types of cancer: cervical, vaginal/vulvar, anal, penile and oral, head and neck.

Strength in Colors 5K brings awareness to these cancers and the ribbon colors they represent. It provides a fun and family-focused platform to offer education, prevention information and support to our community.

All HPV-related cancers are preventable. Screenings, annual exams, education, and the HPV vaccine are all methods of cancer prevention.
