As you have probably read, the first annual No Stomach For Cancer Walk held around the world on November 3rd raised $35,415! This is an enormous success for our entire community!
Many community members have also organized a variety of fundraisers…jewelry sales, family gatherings, local walks, wine tasting, meals…the list goes on. They have generously donated the proceeds to No Stomach For Cancer, knowing that their funds would go directly to stomach cancer research.
Therefore, it is with gratitude and pride that we announce that we will award $50,000 directly to stomach cancer research. It is through money raised from our Walk, individual fundraisers, and donations that we are able to make this award.
Our Scientific Advisory Council will help us determine what is the most promising stomach cancer research that we can fund with this money. We will keep you informed as we go through the process, from details about the research project selected, to updates as it progresses, to the final outcome of the project. Like many of you, we want to know more about and follow the progress of the research funded with the money that you helped raise.
Thank you for taking us one step closer to attaining our vision of “a world without stomach cancer.”
