To Do: Running for Answers 5K

Help fund research for the treatment of desmoid tumors

We’re constantly running for answers, right?  You want to clear your head, get your heart-rate up and figure out how you can politely ask your neighbors to please stop blasting heavy metal at 3 a.m. EVERY singly day. So, you bust out the running gear and go searching for some answers.

On September 29th, join Running for Answers in a 5K to help answer some seriously important questions for a change. The first annual race supporting the Desmoid Research Foundation was started by Sera Snyder, who was diagnosed with a desmoid tumor at age 26. Desmoid tumors are a form of tumor which can infiltrate vital structures and organs, having devastating effects on the lives of two to four million people each year.

To help fund research for the treatment of these mysterious tumors, register for the scenic race through Fairmount Park here. And, check out Sera’s blog to learn more about the disease.

$30 pre-registration, $40 day-of, September 29th at 8:30 a.m., Please Touch Museum, 4231 Avenue of the Republic, Fairmount Park.
