More than 1,000 runners participated in the 5th annual Ben’s Run on April 25. The event raised more than $90,000 for pediatric cancer research in memory of Ben Goldfogle. Thank you to Clare and Tom Goldfogle, the committee members, volunteers, and everyone who supported this event to improve cancer treatment and provide new hope for children and families.
The 6th annual run will be held on April 23, 2016. To support Ben's Run, like their page on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, and visit their website at bensrun.org.
Ben's Run raises critical funds to gather the vast body of data and research that's needed to help young researchers move from just small government grants and have a chance to get NIH funding that can bring new treatments to patients. Specifically, these funds support critical new research to detect cancer's return earlier. By supporting Ben's Run, you are helping to take ideas to reality -- and your donations are multiplied exponentially as it helps researchers attract larger grants.
