Dear Knock Out Sarcoma Participants and Supporters,

Once again - you have done it! Despite the short notice, evolving COVID regulations, and limited reminders, all of you made this event nothing short of a huge success. Thanks so much to everyone who showed up and joined us in person for the Van Cortlandt Park run and thanks, as well, to all of our virtual participants who helped us expand our event across the region and even to other cities!

We would like to send a special thanks to our 2021 sponsors, starting with Stryker at the Gold Sponsor Level. Thanks to all of our Silver Level Sponsors including DepuySynthes, and KCI/3M, as well as Acell and Daiichi-Sankyo who are new to our event this year! We also appreciate Hangar for their long term support and a new partner, Checkpoint Surgical, who we are glad to have on our team!

Thanks to all of you we were able to exceed our 2019 event's fundraising results! These monies are essential for novel and exploratory research projects, which we hope will culminate in both further grant support and ultimately in better solutions and treatments for sarcoma patients both here at Montefiore and beyond. Please check back with us on the website in the coming weeks as we continue to upload pictures from the event. Check out race times on the registration site - for those of you who are interested! Finally, please keep us in mind for next year and look for an even grander event in 2022!

Until then, we are wishing all of you a safe, prosperous and enjoyable year. Thanks again, for helping us raise awareness, supporting sarcoma research and sharing in our goal of finding better treatments for our patients!

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 5th, 2021 in the morning and lasted approximately 2 - 3 hours. Despite the COVID restrictions which prevented a longer planning period, it was an overwhelming success! We were joined by friends, family, colleagues and patients, all of whom joined in the event in one way or another. Additionally, we had virtual participants from across the country! Thanks so much and please save the date for next year - June 4th, 2022! We hope to see everyone there!
