Why Support Ben's Run?
Funding critical new research to detect cancer's return at an earlier point in time is part of the ground breaking trials that your donations and run registration fees are moving forward. The ability to fund new research has changed dramatically over the years. Young researchers can reliably get small government grants to get started, but the next level of funding requires a vast body of data and research. Philanthropy is the only way to bridge the gap so that these researchers have a shot at the real NIH funding that will actually bring new treatments to patients. Ben's Run is proud to be a real catalyst in gathering the body of data and research that in turn attracts even greater dollars to see these ideas through - your money actually multiplies exponentially as this critical research we fund gets picked up and funded by even larger grants. Together we can change treatments and provide new hope for children and their families battling cancer.
