Angiosarcoma Awareness, Inc. is hosting the 2nd Annual Angiosarcoma Awareness 5K (3.1 mi) Race and Walk on Sunday, May 6th at 9am.
The Angiosarcoma Awareness 5K began last year as a way to help raise funds to research this very rare and fatal form of cancer. Since that time, Angiosarcoma Awareness, Inc has continued to fully fund its own research laboratory at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Center in New York City while forming research partnerships at the University of Minnesota and at the MD Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas. The research efforts of scientists at these three institutions have paved the way for two clinical trials that are currently ongoing and have provided countless patients and their families with assistance in finding treatment options throughout the US and abroad. Every cent raised by Angiosarcoma Awareness, Inc. goes directly into research and without events such as this one, funding for ongoing and future research would not be possible.
This 5K race/walk is sanctioned by the USA Track and Field organization and official times will be recorded. However, this race is open to all age and ability groups. Whether you are trying to set a personal best record or to simply enjoy a beautiful spring walk through the paved back roads of Oxford, this is an event for you.
