We are honored that the best Memphis Style BBQ restaurant in St. Louis will be at our event to help us feed our family and friends.
Are you ready for this year’s fun event? Show your support by participating, volunteering, and sponsoring our annual event today! All proceeds are split evenly between Washington University’s Siteman Cancer Center Research Lab and the Sarcoma Foundation of America for advancements in sarcoma treatment research.
The Fifth Annual STL Cure Sarcoma 6K Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, October 7th, 2018 at Creve Coeur Park. In the five year existence of this fundraiser, you have helped us raise over $650,000!
Sarcoma is a rare cancer that originates in soft tissue or bone and accounts for 1% of cancers in adults and 15% in children. Sarcoma may be curable by surgery alone or by a combination of surgery with chemotherapy and/or radiation. Unfortunately, many sarcomas are totally resistant to all of these approaches—thus the extreme need for new therapeutic developments. At any one time, about 50,000 patients and their families are struggling with sarcoma. Funds raised from the STL Cure Sarcoma 6K Run/Walk will support the development of more effective treatment options that will create higher survival rates from this aggressive cancer.
We would like to thank everyone who supports this annual event. Download the 2018 Race Flyer
