Welcome to the 10th annual Pittsburgh Cure Sarcoma (PCS) 5K Run/ 1M Walk on Saturday, June 27, 2020!
The 10th annual event is being organized independently by PCS under our recently granted 501c3 federal tax exempt status. Our goal is to raise both awareness and resources for sarcoma research through the Hillman Cancer Center's Sarcoma Research Fund and other sarcoma research opportunities.
Often deemed the "Forgotten Cancer", sarcoma research is greatly underfunded due to its rarity. The success of this effort depends on contributions from both organizations and concerned individuals.
By participating in this fundraiser, you'll share your story with others while raising much needed funds for sarcoma research.

When you choose to take part in the 10th Annual Pittsburgh Cure Sarcoma 5K, you are choosing to join hundreds of others who want to make a difference for sarcoma patients and their families.
Since our inception in 2011, the annual race event has brought thousands of participants and volunteers together to promote sarcoma advocacy. This year PCS is closing in on $1.5 Million dollars donated to sarcoma research.
Due to its rarity, sarcoma research has been historically underfunded. As a 100% volunteer led organization, PCS is best suited to make sure your donation makes the greatest impact. With no overhead to consider, we are able to donate every dollar raised after race expenses. We welcome in kind donations of water, food/beverages or race day services to help keep our expenses down and maximize the dollars donated for sarcoma research and advocacy.
