In honor of PT Day of Service, let’s come together and raise money for cancer research! This year the 5k is virtual, so you can do it wherever you are! Join our team here.

After you register with a donation, we will send you a custom race bib that you can download and print at home prior to your race.

We want to see you!! Make sure to post a picture or video to the FB page! Also, either email us pictures of you training for the race, running/walking your race, fundraising or tell us if you are doing this in honor of someone. We would like to feature you on our Greater New York District NYPTA Instagram Stories and Twitter!

You do not need to be a member of NYPTA to join our team and you are welcome to invite any friends, family or colleagues to participate. Because this event is all about giving back to the community, with the community!

Lastly, the top fundraiser will receive a sweet treat! This year has been especially tough for all of us, so let’s do something fun, positive and good for everyone.

If you have any questions or ideas please email me at: gatlincarrie@gmail.com

Thank you!

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 touches too many lives and hits too close to home, so we are doing what we can to stop this terrible disease. We are committed to raising money to help fund Dr. Brentjens’ research at MSK, and need your help. Please make any size donation to join us in this fight!

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!
