Lifetime Fitness Colorado Springs is Making Waves to Fight Cancer with Swim Across America. Everyone's life has been impacted by cancer which is why we're swimming to help "Make Waves to Fight Cancer" and raise money for cancer research, prevention and treatment.
SAA Denver funds benefit two research projects at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Hospital Colorado. The acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) research project, led by Drs. Amanda Winters, Taizo Nakano, and Craig Forester will bring new therapies into Phase 2 clinical trials for pediatric MDS and better define how to diagnose, classify and treat MDS patients. The tumor research project, led by Dr. Adam Green, will characterize the immune response to new brain tumors to better establish which types are amenable to cancer immunotherapy, and provide a new prognostic marker for these diseases.
Registrations: 7 Goal: 5000
WHAT: In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. We joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that. All funds raised will benefit cancer research & clinical trials at Children's Hopsital Colorado.
This event is open to members and non-members. Registration is $25 for members and $35 for non-members.
