2 races

Organiser's Description

We are "Lookin' For a Cure" in Palo Alto. Join A Cure in Sight on Saturday July 15th, 8AM-11AM
Help raise awareness and support the fight against ocular melanoma, the most common eye cancer in U.S. adults.  
Walk shoulder-to-shoulder with ocular melanoma survivors, their families, and the medical professionals who care for them at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford University School of Medicine. 
All ages are welcome to attend. Come run, walk, or stay in one place and play games at the Third Annual Lookin' for a Cure 5K at Stanford, hosted by A Cure in Sight and the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford.  Set up your team, invite your friends and family, start your fundraiser and you are off to the finish line. 
Prithvi Mruthyunjaya, MD, MHS, professor of ophthalmology who anchors the ocular tumor service at Stanford is also working hard at Stanford to bring this event to fruition.
Proceeds from this event will support Stanford Ocular Oncology Program. Stanford is a national leader in providing state-of-the-art care for ocular melanoma patients of all ages and has pioneered groundbreaking research advances. 
The race also aims to spread the word about the importance of early detection by getting regular dilated eye exams. Ocular melanoma makes up approximately 5 percent of melanomas in the U.S. Between 6 and 8 million people per million will be diagnosed annually in the Western world.
