We Need You for the National Race to Cure Sarcoma Virtual Event

In celebration of Sarcoma Awareness Month, the Sarcoma Foundation of America invites you to join us for the National Race to Cure Sarcoma Virtual event on July 25, 2020.

July is an important month for the sarcoma community because it is a time dedicated to those who have been touched by sarcoma. Although we are miles apart, we are connected through our common goal to find a cure for this disease. Join us as we virtually gather together to raise much needed awareness and research dollars in support of sarcoma patients and survivors and ultimately an end to sarcoma.

What is the National Race to Cure Sarcoma Virtual Event?

It is a 5K, or any distance you would like, event that ANYONE can run or walk from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.

Why should I join?

By joining this virtual race, you will help raise awareness and funds for sarcoma research. On the same day at the same time you will be part of a nationwide effort to find a cure for sarcoma. Everyone can participate regardless of age, health, or ability to travel to specific locations.

Spread the word!

Have your friends and family join you for this virtual race. Create a fundraising team and challenge each other to hit your goals. Share your efforts on social media and use the hashtag #NationalVirtualRTCS to connect with others who are participating all across the nation.

Wear your National Virtual RTCS shirt, bib and wristband and share on social media using the hashtag #NationalVirtualRTCS. We will have a full program on July 25 that highlights participants and sponsors, a kickoff speaker and other ways for you to engage as you support sarcoma research.

Wondering how you can help now?

If you’re already registered, keep fundraising and invite your friends to join you and register as virtual walker/runner! They can be anywhere in the country and support you and sarcoma research!

If you have not registered, join us! Registration is easy! Click here to sign up using social media or email. Registration is $35, which gives you great RTCS Swag including a National Virtual RTCS T-shirt, wristband and a bib. All your #NationalRTCSVirtual gear will be mailed to the address you use to register.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, SFA moved several of the Race to Cure Sarcoma events scheduled for the summer months to virtual races and changed the dates to coincide with the National Virtual Race. If there was a race in your area that was changed, feel free to register on your city’s registration page below so we can track which city had the most participants!

Baltimore
Louisville
Milwaukee
San Francisco

If your city is scheduled for later in the year, we will either have the race in-person or have another virtual race that includes several cities. We will be sure to keep you updated as things evolve.

Share your story with us!

As part of the virtual program, we want to recognize the amazing stories of our sarcoma supporters. Help us by sending videos, pictures and stories that we can share online. Post them on our National Virtual RTCS Facebook page, share to your social media and tag @CureSarcoma, or email them to us at nationalrtcs@curesarcoma.org.

Thank you for your continued support of the Race to Cure Sarcoma event and the SFA. We look forward to walking or running with you on July 25.

Together we can find a cure!
