The Snack Attackers (TSA)
We are joining the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research again! This year, the run is "virtual," so we will be running our own course on October 10, 2020.
Terry Fox was a Canadian athlete, humanitarian, and cancer research activist. In 1980, with one leg having been amputated due to cancer, he began a cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. He ran a marathon every day for 143 days and covered 5,373 kilometres (3,339 mi) before his cancer forced him to stop. His courage has inspired annual runs to support cancer research that have continued for forty years.
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 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!
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!
