The Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center has teamed up with one of the world’s largest and most powerful cancer research organizations, the American Association for Cancer Research on several new endeavors to propel our organizations in the cancer arena. Most recently, this strategic alliance has focused on getting out into the community with the strong media outreach focused on two key philanthropic events: Scramble Fore Research on June 26, 2017 and the Philadelphia Rock 'n' Roll Marathon on September 16-17, 2017. These events look to unite our organizations under the common goal of increased funding for cancer research in the hopes of eliminating this horrible disease.
