Sarcoma Strong Corner

by Matthew R. DiCaprio

Sarcoma Strong experienced growth in 2018 and is well positioned to continue to support the research mission of MSTS through our collaboration. Many thanks to the Team at Montefiore who hosted their first race in 2018 and donated a portion of their funds back to the organization that inspired them to start an event. Michael Mott and the Detroit Orthopaedic Team also held their inaugural event on August 18th.

Several other MSTS members became more involved through the Virtual Run option: Wakenda Tyler at Columbia Orthopaedics, Scott Weiner from Summa Health in Akron Ohio, Francis Lee, Dieter Lindskog and Izuchukwu Ibe from Yale Orthopaedics, and Rosanna Wustrack from UCSF.

Goals for 2019:

  • Surpass $100,000 raised for the year
  • Expand to 10-15 centers throughout the country
  • Increase our social media presence
  • Collaborate with other organizations with similar goals

Our registration is already up and running for our 2019 event. The 6th Annual Sarcoma Strong 5k Run/Walk will be in Albany, NY (UAlbany campus) on August 17th.

For those who have expressed a desire to get more involved I have created a Team for your institution on the registration site. An MSTS member at that institution is listed as the Team Captain. Please share the site with your sarcoma patients, their families, and your staff and colleagues at your respective institutions. Help propel us to the next fundraising level by growing our national presence.
