Johns Hopkins Team Sarcoma

Team Sarcoma 2008 is an international initiative to raise sarcoma awareness. Next week, 30 medical centers and dozens of advocacy and patient groups will be holding events in 12 countries as part of the Team Sarcoma Initiative. Organized by the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative, this annual event has grown from a single event in 2003 to a multi-national event involving more than 5,000 participants this year.

Johns Hopkins will be hosting a Team Sarcoma event on Saturday, July 12. Entitled “All Wheels Welcome,” we will be biking, blading, and even wheelchairing along the Baltimore-Annapolis Trail from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon.

If you’re in the area and want to join us, email me and I’ll get you the details. The event is free (we just want to raise awareness), but we’d like to have some idea of how many people are coming.

Dr David,

Just a correction - Saturday is July 12.

Sounds like a pleasant outing.

Thank you so much for doing this! If any of your readers are not in Baltimore, they can check here for additional event locations. Since the press release came out last week, we're up to 14 countries and more than 70 events!

Anon-you're right. I've always had trouble with calendars! I've made the date match the day above. Thanks!

Mary-that's awesome! I hope that by next week there are even more.

Thanks for posting this-Liddy Shriver's Team Sarcoma is great. The event in Denmark that I was involved with a couple years ago was amazing!

I hope that you have good weather and a great turnout today for your local outing, and that the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative has much success in raising sarcoma awareness everywhere during this event.
