2024 Knock Out Sarcoma 5K

June 08, 2024 —

Knock Out Sarcoma is a 5 K Fun Run designed to raise awareness of and support for sarcoma research.  This event offers an opportunity for colleagues, friends, patients, families and community members to rally behind our work towards a cure for sarcoma, which afflicts both pediatric and adult patients and which often has limited therapeutic options.   At Montefiore, we are committed to better understanding how these diseases develop and more importantly, finding better treatments for our patients and beyond.  Ultimately, we hope to realize a cure for sarcoma and hope you can join in the fight!  Your support for this event will be tremendously valued and appreciated!

The Knock Out Sarcoma Fun Run is held in Van Cortlandt Park, not far from Montefiore Medical Center's Moses Campus, where much of our work is done.  The course is flat and perfect for our event!  It will be timed, for those interested.  We are really glad we can get together in person and hope to build on the great results we enjoyed last year!  For those who want to support the cause, but can't make it in person, you can still join us virtually and in this way help us raise awareness, increase research funding, and grow our amazing event!

Please join us in our effort to raise research dollars to support the Musculoskeletal Oncology Laboratory at Montefiore as well the Sarcoma Strong Initiative - both of which seek to improve sarcoma outcomes through innovative and cutting-edge research.  Help us fight for a cure!
