Cancer Walk & Run to Celebrate Milestone Anniversary

The UMass Cancer Walk and Run will celebrate its 20th anniversary this fall when patients, family members, caregivers, business owners and others come together September 30 to support adult and pediatric cancer research at the Medical School and Medical Center. “When I first got to UMass, I heard a lot about the cancer walk and how important it is for the community and for supporting clinical trials going on here, so I’m very excited to participate,” said Jason Shohet, MD, PhD, chief of pediatric hematology and oncology at our Children’s Medical Center. The walk has raised more than $12 million to date, and this year’s goal is $750,000. Watch the video for a snapshot of the event. Learn more and register to participate.
