Team Mark Adkins

We will participate this year by running in loving memory of Mark. 

We miss him dearly but continue to draw inspiration from our fond memories and his enduring lessons of kindness, strength and courage.

love, Wendy, Jake and Rye


As most of you know..

On May 11th, 2018 the world lost one of its best. Mark Adkins was a loving husband, kind father and caring friend. Always a generous spirit, he was there to help out and lend his many talents to a good cause.

Mark fought tirelessly in his battle against stage 4 pancreatic cancer in 2017/18. He received phenomenal care by devoted doctors and nurses and was fortunate enough to have had access to the best therapies available to date. Above all, I believe it was his determination and positive attitude that made all the difference in his fight.

Jake, Rye and I honor his memory again this year by running as “Team Mark Adkins”.

We hope you can donate to the cause and fund the brilliant minds working towards a cure to beat cancer for good! 



We're raising money the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research in New York City.

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!
