4th Annual 5K Run/Walk - The Finish Line

You Did It!! With your support and participation, you crushed the results of the first three 5K’s and raised over $75,000 for this year's event, far surpassing our prior year best of $45,000! Our Heartfelt Thanks to all our sponsors, donors, and participants.

Without you... the Fund is not possible.

Without you... the research for a cure does not continue.

Without you... the clinical trial does not move forward.

But With You, the Fund IS moving forward. With the money the Fund has raised since inception, Dr. Alley and Dr. Albelda have been successfully researching and performing baseline studies enhancing Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T Cell therapies in solid tumors, which were submitted to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for grant consideration. As a result, the NCI has provided a $10.7 million grant to support research over the next five years. All because of YOU! Thank you for your continued support and participation. Please click here to learn more about this incredible grant and explanation from Dr. Alley. Our hearts are overwhelmed. Thank you!

So, we have reached the Finish Line of The 4th Annual 5K Run/Walk. The success of this event is so inspiring, that we are already looking forward to next year's event, The 5th Annual 5K Run/Walk. Next year's event is slated for September 28, 2019, so please mark your calendar.

Yet, as you may be aware, the 2018 Holiday Season is upon us. And we certainly wish you and your family the very best. However, there are those that need more than our wishes. We hope that you can help support our 3rd Annual Believe in the Magic of Santa.
