The Amazing Race for a Cure was founded in 2015 by teenager Devyn Casey following the 2013 death of her grandfather from lung cancer. Her goal was to raise $400 through a scavenger hunt for the hospital and lung cancer awareness. To date, the Amazing Race for a Cure has raised $27,000 for the hospital’s Lung Cancer Research Fund.
