Everyone can join our Steps to Stop Cancer Summer 5k!

Cancer knows no bounds of gender, age, or race - it impacts everyone.  It's estimated that nearly 1.9 million new people will be diagnosed with cancer in the US this year.  Due to a delay in preventative care last year, many new diagnoses are expected to be late-stage and 608,570 patients will die in the United States alone because of this disease.  

We are proud to present this Virtual 5k as an opportunity to stay active and do good, wherever you are!  Proceeds from this event support the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation and our ongoing melanoma immunotherapy research study at Massachusetts General Hospital. 

Melanoma is the fifth most prevalent cancer in the US - according to the National Cancer Institute, 2.3% of men and women will be diagnosed with melanoma at some point during their lifetime.  Exposure to sunlight or artificial sunlight and a history of blistering sunburns can increase your risk of melanoma, so remember to apply your sunscreen before you set off to complete your 5k!  Learn more about the risk factors, symptoms, and treatment of melanoma from the National Cancer Institute.
