Team Mark Adkins
We run, walk and stroll again this year in loving memory of our wonderful husband, father, son and friend, Mark Adkins.
We miss him dearly but continue to draw inspiration from our fond memories and his enduring lessons of kindness, strength and courage.
love, Wendy, Jake and Rye
As most of you know..
On May 11th, 2018 the world lost one of its best. Mark Adkins was a loving husband, kind father and caring friend. Always a generous spirit, he was there to help out and lend his many talents to a good cause.
Mark fought tirelessly in his battle against stage 4 pancreatic cancer in 2017/18. He received phenomenal care by devoted doctors and nurses and was fortunate enough to have had access to the best therapies available to date. Above all, I believe it was his determination and positive attitude that made all the difference in his fight.
We honor his memory again this year as “Team Mark Adkins”. Last year our NYC team raised over $40,000 to help fund research to fight this evil ilness.
We hope you can join us and support this meaningful event again this fall!
100% of every dollar you give supports new research directed by Dr. Renier Brentjens at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Dr. Brentjens’ lab focuses on immunotherapy research to treat acute and chronic leukemias.
"No matter how promising the research or how inspired the scientists, nothing can happen without the resources to fund the work. We now have many reasons to feel hopeful about using T cells in the treatment of many kinds of cancer, and we wouldn't be where we are without the support from organizations like The Terry Fox Run." ~ Dr. Renier Brentjens
CANCER IS NEVER STRAIGHTFORWARD
Cancer touches too many lives and hits too close to home, so I am doing what I can to stop this terrible disease. I am committed to raising money to help fund Dr. Brentjens’ research at MSK, and I need your help. Please make any size donation to join me in this fight!
SUPPORT LIFESAVING RESEARCH
None of Dr. Brentjens’ research would have been possible without the resources from donors like you. Since the Terry Fox Run for cancer research in New York City began more than two decades ago, over $3 million has been raised. Just a reminder: 100% of your gift goes to research. Be a part of the fight in ending cancer, donate today!
