RUN FOR THE STRIPES
2012 was the first year for the Run For The Stripes 5K run/walk. We had beautiful weather for the 300 participants at the Philadelphia Zoo. We had an incredible turnout for the Run For The Stripes 5K this year at the Philadelphia Zoo on November 12, 2016. We had over 600 participants show up to walk /run on a beautiful fall day. Several "teams" wore shirts supporting friends and family who have been affected by neuroendocrine cancers. The sense of community and support was palpable. We also raised an incredible amount of funds for NeuroEndocrine Tumor (NET) research. $45,000 was donated to University Of Pennsylvania Abramson Cancer Center for NET research from this year's Run For The Stripes 5K. So many exciting new research projects are under way looking at better treatment options for neuroendocrine cancers and hopefully a cure. The University of Pennsylvania is on the forefront of NET research.
