The COVID 19 outbreak has prevented our 2020 event from taking place as planned. However, we are looking to 2021 - to be an even grander and impactful event. Please save the date and join us for the Montefiore Knock Out Sarcoma 5K Fun Run/Walk on June 5, 2021. The event will be held at Van Cortlandt Park at 8:30 AM.
Sarcomas are a rare form of cancer, affecting patients of all ages. Many of these sarcomas arise in otherwise healthy children and young adults and inflict a tremendous toll on both patients and their families. Montefiore Orthopedic Oncology is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with both soft-tissue and bone sarcomas. In addition, our laboratory seeks to better understand how these tumors arise and, in turn, how to better treat them.
Together with the Sarcoma Strong Initiative, we are hosting the Knock Out Sarcoma 5K Fun Run/Walk to raise funds for the ongoing fight against sarcoma. Funding will support the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society through the Sarcoma Strong Initiative, as well as our own Musculoskeletal Oncology Laboratory.
Registration information will be available byJanuary 2021.
