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 St. Louis 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, honors the fight of loved ones lost and builds a community for those affected by sarcoma.
