WHO WE ARE:
The St. Louis Cure Sarcoma 6K fundraiser was created by a group of individuals directly affected by Sarcoma. We are a group of Sarcoma warriors, survivors, loved ones of those lost, and relatives of those still fighting. Regardless of our different journeys with this disease, we all have one thing in common: We have all been affected by the lack of Sarcoma research and limited treatment options for Sarcoma patients. We created this group with the assistance of our oncologist, Brian Van Tine, M.D., Ph.D., to fund research through our Annual STL Cure Sarcoma 6K Run/Walk. We strongly believe in Dr. Van Tine’s research and have made it a priority to reserve half of the proceeds of this event to benefit his research lab at Washington University in St. Louis. Our goal is to generate funding for research both nationwide through The Sarcoma Foundation of America, and right here in St. Louis. We hope to create a patient-oriented event that celebrates the life of survivors/warriors, honors the fight of loved ones lost, and builds a community for those affected by sarcoma.
What You Need to Know:
6K Virtual Run/Walk. (3.72 miles)

Each participant will receive a regular event day t-shirt, with the opportunity to upgrade to a performance wicking shirt for an additional fee ($10).
*T-shirts cannot be guaranteed with registrations submitted after September 21st. Registration will remain open until October 31st. Extra t-shirts will be ordered and given on a first come first serve basis.
PACKET PICK UP:
VERY IMPORTANT: We encourage all to attend one of the packet pickups listed below or have a designated team person attend one of the events to pick up your t-shirt(s) and packet (s). On approximately Sept 26th, we will send out an email requesting you to submit a list of your bulk pickups so we can have them all together on the day of the pickups.
Please do not let this discourage you from signing up. We will gladly mail you your packet if you can not attend one of the pickups. Mailing the packets is approximately $5 per packet, of which you will be charged when registering. But again, please do not refrain from signing up.
The packet pickups will be contact free as we have selected two locations which allow us to do drive-thru pickup. When you arrive, one of our awesome volunteers/committee members will ask you for your name, your packet will be put together and place ether in your backseat or trunk. This allows us to have zero contact with the person picking up the packets as we know many of you will be returning to a household with a warrior/survivor of sarcoma and/or where immune systems are compromised.
