About the Stomp Out Sarcoma Fun Run/Walk
The annual Stomp Out Sarcoma Fun Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, July 16, 2017, at Hudson Mills Metropark in Dexter, Michigan. Join us for fun, exercise, and to support the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. This event is all about bringing community members together with doctors, patients, nurses, physician assistants, patients’ family members, nurse practitioners, and researchers outside the hospital, united in one cause: fighting sarcoma.
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. Due to this rarity, patients often feel isolated after being diagnosed and throughout treatment.
Stomp Out Sarcoma 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 this rare disease and to provide support to patients, families, caregivers, and friends affected by sarcoma. All proceeds from the fun run/walk will go to the Sarcoma Clinical Research Fund at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center, to help researchers and clinicians better understand this disease and find more effective treatments.
Now in our 9th year, our goal is to raise a record amount: $50,000! We need your help. Help us Stomp out Sarcoma!
When you sign up to participate in the Run/Walk, form a team, and raise money, you are raising awareness for this rare disease, and supporting the critical research and clinical care done at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
