Thank you for joining Kate's Team! We raise money for the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research in New York City in memory of Kate O'Shaughnessy, who lost her battle with melanoma in December 2000. Like Terry, she was one month shy of her 23rd birthday. Her energy, spirit and memory lives on in those who knew and loved her. Through the true connection and commitment of the Terry Fox Run - NYC, Kate's Team has grown and strengthened Kate's legacy of love and dedication. We have raised over $300,000 for Memorial Sloan Kettering and we hope that you will join us in the brave fight against cancer.
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 IS NEVER STRAIGHTFORWARD

None of Dr. Brentjens’ research would have been possible without the resources from donors like you.
