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

6th Annual Virtual 5K Run/Walk/Cycle - The Finish Line

Another Incredible Event!! With your support and participation, and despite the imposed Virtual conditions, the 6th Annual 5K was a huge success, raising over $70,000! 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 with an expectation to generate these cells directly within the body, with a simple injection of mRNA. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) grant in the amount of $10.7 million to support this research has played an integral role in keeping Dr. Albelda's team moving forward.

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

So, we have reached the Finish Line of The 6th Annual Virtual 5K Run/Walk/Cycle. The cumulative success of these events continues to inspire us as we look forward to next year's event, The 7th Annual 5K Run/Walk.

Next year's event is slated for September 25, 2021, so please mark your calendar.

And....Just like that, the 2020 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 5th Annual Believe in the Magic of Santa.
