Maxime Chanot, veteran center-back for NYCFC, invites you to join the Knock Out Sarcoma event this Saturday, June 10th in Van Cortlandt Park.  Hear him explain how this casual but important event is doing more for sarcoma research, awareness, and collaboration.  

Knock Out Sarcoma Emissary

Gabe Segal, forward for NYCFC, is recruiting you!  Clear your morning schedule and register for our annual fun run/walk!  Help a great cause! Money raised is used to fund translational research that focuses on finding better solutions for patients with sarcomas.  We hope to see you there!
Dear Knock Out Sarcoma Participants and Supporters,

Thanks so much to everyone who participated and supported the 2023 6th annual Knock Out Sarcoma event!! The smoke cleared, the sun came out and we had a really wonderful morning! We also want to thank and recognize our NYC Football Club Champions, the team leadership, our amazing marketing department, as well as our virtual participants, donors, and industry sponsors who helped make it all happen. We want to recognize and applaud out patients and their families, our CBS classmates and colleagues and all of the friends and family members who carved out time to join us! THANK YOU!

We again would like to send a special thanks to our 2023 sponsors, old and new - and look forward to having their ongoing support in a year for our 7th annual event!!

We will break for the summer and regroup in the fall to begin planning the 2024 event. We hope to see everyone back again for another outstanding fun run! We will again have an educational session for all the health care providers, residents, interns, medical students, physician extenders, and staff members - many of whom do so much for our patients each and every day. We will also extend warm invitations to many of our patients, their families, and their friends. Finally, we hope many of our larger network or colleagues, co-workers, and connections will come out for a good cause and a great event! Please save the date, keep us in mind, and help us knock out sarcoma!!

Sarcomas are rare and your support can make a big difference! Join in the fight and help support our efforts!

Sarcomas are a rare form of cancer, affecting patients of all ages. Many of these sarcomas arise in otherwise healthy children and young adults and inflict a tremendous toll on both the patient and their family. The Division of Orthopedic Oncology at Montefiore Medical Center is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with both soft-tissue and bone sarcomas. In addition, our laboratory seeks to better understand how these tumors arise and in turn, how to better treat them.

Knock Out Sarcoma Ambassador

Listen up! Kevin O'Toole, left back for the @nycfc, has invited you to lace up your running shoes and join us on a family-friendly run for a great cause -- the Knock Out Sarcoma 5k. Race day is just one week away. Will we see you there?

Knock Out Sarcoma

Our next Knock Out Sarcoma Fun/Run is scheduled to take place on Saturday June 8th, 2024 in the morning and will last approximately 2 - 3 hours. Our event seems to gain momentum and energy each year and we are hoping 2024 will be no exception. We hope to see everyone there!
