Thank You for Joining the Race to Beat Cancer

Starting line of 2018 Race to Beat Cancer in Washington DC

Thank you to all the MHRI and MedStar associates who attended and participated in the 2018 Race to Beat Cancer 5K. This charitable event is one of the premier 5K races in Washington, DC, and was held on Saturday, September 15, 2018.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Washington Cancer Institute at MedStar Washington Hospital Center is a regional leader and national model for patient-focused cancer diagnosis and treatment that provides the highest quality, and latest medical advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Thanks to the many sponsors and supporters, the event raised more money for cancer research than ever before. The goal for this year was $400,000 and they are just shy of the goal. Many thanks to the host, Four Seasons Hotel, Washington DC, for its continued commitment and partnership to the patients and staff at Washington Cancer Institute over the past 18 years.

Opportunities to contribute to advances in research are still happening in the area. Learn more about events in DC and Baltimore here.
