Wistar's Champion Run for Research 2019
The Wistar Institute is a leading independent research institute in Philadelphia whose mission is to advance cures for cancer and infectious diseases. The trainees at Wistar (pre- and post-doctoral research fellows) play an essential role in the transformative research we do every day.
In the spirit of #GivingTuesday, The Wistar Institute is hosting a 2 mile fun run/walk to support the training program and Wistar trainees. All funds raised through this event will directly support the training, education, and development of the next generation of biomedical researchers. Thank you for your support!
When: Sunday, November 17 at 10 am
Where: Start at The Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, PA and end at the Rocky Statue. See map for route details.
How: Registration to run or walk is $20 and includes a limited edition long or short sleeve Wistar shirt or a Wistar Nike hat. We are asking all registrants to help us fundraise for their 2 mile run/walk.
If you are unable to participate but would like to support the trainees, you can donate to support Wistar trainees as a group or a specific registrant.
New this year!
- The first 10 registrants who meet the minimum fundraising goal of $100 will have their funds matched by Cigna.
