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:
This year will be a hybrid event again, and you can support the cause by doing a virtual run/walk with close family and friends. We encourage you though if you feel safe, to attend the live event on Sunday, October 8th.
If you have attended one of our events in the past, you know the STL Cure Sarcoma 6K is not just a race. It is an event where people can gather after the run/walk and meet others affected by sarcoma. This lets people know they are not alone in their fight.
We are encouraging teams to bring a team tent and set it up in the designated area. We will not be providing food but encourage all teams to pack their lunches or have lunch catered in.
A couple local food trucks will be providing their specialty coffee drinks for a pre/post run treat.
KIDS and ADULT ACTIVITIES
We encourage you to stick around for the post run/walk activities. We will be having basket raffles, car smash, 50/50 drawings, bounce houses, face paintings and balloon artists.
