LEAVE YOUR MARK ON THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER!
Join us on Sunday, August 7, 2011 for the third annual Runyon 5K, a unique cancer research fundraising run/walk that uses Yankee Stadium as its course. Run or walk the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take your own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field!
The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation http://www.damonrunyon.org/about_us/ funds early career cancer researchers who have the energy, drive and creativity to become leading innovators in their fields. We identify the best young scientists in the nation and support them through three award programs: our Fellowship, Clinical Investigator and Innovation Awards.
Since 1946, Damon Runyon has invested more than $230 million in the best young minds in the nation. Our alumni include 11 Nobel Laureates and leaders of major cancer centers across the United States. Many of our 3,250 scientists have gone on to make breakthroughs in the way we prevent, diagnose and treat many forms of cancer.
