The second Annual Knockin’ Down ASPS Event in the memory of Anthony Salisbury (AJ) took place on April 10th, 2010. Over $16,000 were raised this year, which were donated directly to the laboratory of Dr. Glenn Dranoff at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston in favor of his efforts of finding a cure for Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma. The Knockin’ Down ASPS committee asked to post the following message:
” It was great seeing so many people join for a cause that is so close to many of us. We truly appreciates everyone who participated, donated, or simply joined us the day of the event. We wanted to pass along the opportunity for everyone to check out a large number of pictures that were taken throughout the event. You can check them out be going to the following website: http://picasaweb.google.com/knockindownasps. We also wanted to inform everyone that we will continue to make Knockin’ Down ASPS an annual event. The fight against ASPS is very important to us and we want to continue to make a difference. There isn’t a day that goes by when we don’t remember all the great times we had with our dear friend AJ. We have already raised over $30,000 towards ASPS research in just two years and will continue to work towards a cure. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing everyone again next spring for the 3rd Annual Knockin’ Down ASPS Event. We hope you have a safe and wonderful summer and we will be in touch later in the year as next year’s event draws closer. Thank you for your support.”
Cure Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma International and the Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma community extend our thanks to Knockin’ Down ASPS committee, participants and donors. It is our hope to see progress towards the so much needed ASPS cure.
