Sarcomas affect dogs and people of all ages – we partner with the OSU Veterinary Medical School and Nationwide Children’s Hospital for sarcoma research. Sarcomas represent a family of rare cancers that originate in the connective tissues, which includes fat, muscle, bone, cartilage, nerve, fibrous tissue, and blood vessels.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication during 2013. Whether you contributed in a large or small way, you are making sarcoma research more effective. We are very proud to say our event has grown bigger and stronger each year in participants and funds raised – last year we had over 900 registered participants and raised over $112,000! We now have an amazing four year total profit of over $175,000, which goes to The James Orthopaedic Sarcoma Research Development Fund.
Our event committee, staff, and volunteers work hard to make this event a reality, but each of us feels it is our obligation to bring sarcoma awareness and research to the community. We are making an impact in sarcoma research, in the lives of those affected by this disease, and their loved ones.
We are looking forward to seeing you in September!
