For Global PT Day of Service, please join NYPTA's Greater New York District in the Terry Fox Run (NYC) to raise money for cancer research! This event is a non-competitive, fun-run/walk 5K & the emphasis is on fundraising. All proceeds are donated to support cancer research at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. This is a great way for PTs & PTAs to give back to the community. Friends, family & co workers are welcome to join as well! Can’t come race day? You can still donate to the team!

First 50 people to register with a donation will get an awesome pair of NYPTA sunglasses at the 5k!  Top donor will receive a sweet treat. 

Questions? Please contact PTDOS Ambassador Carrie Fuller at carriegfuller@gmail.com. 

100% of every dollar you give supports new research directed by Dr. Renier Brentjens at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Dr. Brentjens’ lab focuses on immunotherapy research to treat acute and chronic leukemias.

"No matter how promising the research or how inspired the scientists, nothing can happen without the resources to fund the work. We now have many reasons to feel hopeful about using T cells in the treatment of many kinds of cancer, and we wouldn't be where we are without the support from organizations like The Terry Fox Run." ~ Dr. Renier Brentjens

Cancer touches too many lives and hits too close to home, so we are doing what we can to stop this terrible disease. We are committed to raising money to help fund Dr. Brentjens’ research at MSK, and need your help. Please make any size donation to join us in this fight!

None of Dr. Brentjens’ research would have been possible without the resources from donors like you. Since the Terry Fox Run for cancer research in New York City began more than two decades ago, over $3 million has been raised. Just a reminder: 100% of your gift goes to research. Be a part of the fight in ending cancer, donate today!
