The Fourth Annual Summer Scurry took place this year in honor of our founder, Lisa Luciano, on a beautiful day outside of Cleveland, OH and raised nearly $40,000 to fund PMP research and education.  


The Second Annual Appendix Cancer Walk/Run in Newark, DE was another smashing success, raising over $5,000 for PMP research--more than double the organizers' goal.  


The Fourth Annual PMP Pub Crawl in New Haven, CT was another rocking good time and rousing success, netting over $4,000.  


And amazing job Suzy Krahenbul who ran the NYC Marathon in a wonderful tribute to the memory of her father and raised nearly $2,500 in the process.  


Thank you to everyone who coordinated and participated in these wonderful events! We are absolutely thrilled with the results and we are committed to using the funds raised to make a difference in the fight against these diseases!
