Dear Knock Out Sarcoma Participants and Supporters,

Thanks so much - to all of you who donated time, money and effort into making our 2019 event an huge success! The event brought together people from all walks of life – including friends, family members, faculty members, researchers, residents, colleagues, and industry sponsors. We also had a chance to host a few inspirational patients as well as a number of amazing family members and friends of current patients. Join us again this year - either in-person or virtually! Help us raise awareness, support research and find a cure!

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

Our last Knock Out Sarcoma Fun/Run took place on Saturday June 1st, 2019 in the morning and lasted approximately 2 - 3 hours. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 outbreak prevented a 2020 event, however we are now planning the 2021 event and look forward to making it an overwhelming success! Save the date June 5th, 2021! We hope to see everyone there! In the coming days we will have a link to the registration site available. This will enable registration, t-shirt reservation, donations, and more. Please check back soon!! The event serves as an opportunity for friends, colleagues, athletes, and community members to come together, enjoy the outdoors, and to raise money for a rare and underfunded form of cancer. It is a casual, yet meaningful opportunity to give back to some of our sarcoma patients and the individuals who work hard to improve their outcomes. We were glad to have many of you join us for a few hours to help fund future sarcoma research and tomorrow's sarcoma care and look forward to seeing you again in June of 2021! Your support for this event was and continues to be tremendously valued!
