The Stomp Out Sarcoma Fun Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, July 17, 2016, at Hudson Mills Metropark. Join us for an amazing day to support the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Last year, there were people who ran seven-minute miles, those who walked, those who stayed at the shelter, and there were people who were pushed in wheelchairs the entire way. It is not about athletic ability, but about community support. It is a nice way for doctors, patients, nurses, physician assistants, family members, nurse practitioners, and researchers to interact away from the hospital and as fellow human beings united in one cause.

Sarcoma is a rare connective tissue malignancy (cancer) that affects people of all ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, races, and ethnicities. Sarcomas make up about 1% of all adult cancers, so patients often feel alone and confused after being diagnosed and throughout treatment. Around 15-20% of newly diagnosed cancers in children and young adults (20 years or younger) are sarcomas.

This event was started by a group of health care providers in the Sarcoma Clinic at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center to raise awareness about a rare disease and to provide support to patients, families, caregivers, and friends affected by sarcoma. There are patients, family members, and healthcare providers organizing the event this year. All proceeds from the fun run/walk will go to the University of Michigan Sarcoma Clinical Research Fund, to help better understand this disease and find more effective treatments for those who have sarcoma.

Help us...STOMP OUT SARCOMA...for good!
