Team ASPS and Team AVEO Combine Efforts in the 2008 PMC to Raise Funds for ASPS Cure
In August 2008, Team AVEO joined Team ASPS in our efforts to collect funds for finding a cure for ASPS. All of the funds raised by Team ASPS go directly to ASPS research at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
The total donations of $59,093 will support work done by two lead researchers at the DFCI: Dr. Andrew Wagner, a principal investigator in the ARQ197 clinical trial, and Dr. Massimo Loda, who aims to identify new targets for therapy through the analysis of ASPS tissue samples.
Team ASPS biked the 2007 PMC and raised funds to find a cure for ASPS
In the first week of August 2007, Team ASPS participated in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC) bike ride for the fourth time. This bike-a-thon crosses Massachusetts to raise money for cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston. Some of our riders rode 90 miles and others rode 150 miles. The money that our team raised is specifically dedicated to finding a cure for ASPS. The total sum collected by our team this year is $34,649! These donations will support ASPS research in three laboratories at the DFCI.
