Out Sarcoma 5K Participants and Supporters,
On behalf of myself and the entire orthopedic oncology team at Montefiore, I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of you who donated time, money and effort into making this event an absolute 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. Notably, we were joined and supported by the family and friends of some very special patients whom we have lost to this fight and whom we remember fondly. In total, we were supported by over 120 participants and over 140 donors. To everyone involved, thank you for making this event a huge success!
We are just beginning and look forward to growing this event each year. Please keep us in mind, help us spread the word, increase awareness, and raise research funds in the battle against sarcoma. Join us next year once again in our efforts to improve the outcomes and lives of sarcoma patients both here at Montefiore and beyond!

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.
