    All Day

    Art Museum, Eakins Oval

    The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Foundation is partnering with the Love Run to raise money and awareness for cancer research in 2014. The race will be on Sunday, March 30, 2014 in Philadelphia, PA.

    The Love Run, Philadelphia’s newest half marathon, offers an impressive course that starts at the Art Museum before winding through Fairmount Park to Martin Luther King Drive and the Ben Franklin Parkway. We invite you to join us as a runner or volunteer.

    Runners can fundraise as part of the official AACR team – AACR Runners for Research. The team with the most members receives an additional $1000 from the race sponsor. Our goal is to have a team with 20 or more participants in order to receive a free tent at the start and finish lines. This will provide a great opportunity to highlight AACR and the important work that is being done in the field of cancer research.

    Volunteers can lend a hand at the race expo on Saturday, March 29, or at the race itself on Sunday, March 30. The AACR will receive $25 from the race sponsor for every volunteer who signs up on behalf of our organization.

    Contact Melissa Topakbashian at or 215-446-6899 with any questions. Please share with your friends and family. We hope to see you there!
