The Kathleen M. Rotz Lung Cancer Research Fund
8th Annual 5K Fundraising Event

5th Annual 5K Run/Walk - The Finish Line

Another Incredible Event!! With your support and participation, you surpassed all prior year records by raising over $90,000 for this year's event! Our Heartfelt Thanks to all our sponsors, donors, and participants. Further supporting that:

Without you... the Fund is not possible.

Without you... the research for a cure does not continue.

Without you... the clinical trial does not move forward.

But With You, the Fund IS advancing forward with exciting and successful results. With the money the Fund has raised since inception, Dr. Albelda and the Penn Team have been successfully researching and performing baseline studies enhancing Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T-Cell therapies in solid tumors which, in addition to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) grant in the amount of $10.7 million to support research over the next five years, just recently proved successful in treating heart fibrosis, with a continued concentration in developing and expanding the FAP-CAR T-Cell and NK-92 (the Terminator Cell Project) studies.

This ONLY happens because of YOU! Thank you, again, for your continued support and participation. Please click here to learn more about the Project Updates from Dr. Albelda.

We are overwhelmed. Thank you!

So, we have reached the Finish Line of The 5th Annual 5K Run/Walk. The cumulative success of these events continues to inspire us as we look forward to next year's event, The 6th Annual 5K Run/Walk.

Next year's event is slated for September 19, 2020, so please mark your calendar.

And....Just like that, the 2019 Holiday Season is upon us. And we certainly wish you and your family the very best. However, there are those that need more than our wishes. We hope that you can help support our 4th Annual Believe in the Magic of Santa.
