The 2018 9th Annual Running for Answers 5K Run/ Walk and Kids' Fun Run in Fairmount Park is an event for everyone! We have lots in store for you! Perfect weather... a gorgeous course... free post-race ice cream and cheesesteaks.... post race yoga.... a loud and fast Fun Run.... great community!

* Get creative: Make your team really stand out! Remember to wear your crazy socks on race day! Awards will be given to those with the craziest socks! 

* Build your team: Running or walking with others (patients or non- patients) can be a lot of fun and you'll also help increase funds and awareness with each additional person on your team! Email us at with questions! 

* Participate virtually: Can't attend Running for Answers 5K because it's too far away? Create a team to participate VIRTUALLY and walk/ run a local 5K together! Friends, family and coworkers can join your team, and help you fundraise to support desmoid tumor research. When you register, sign up as a "Virtual Participant". 

For more information about desmoid tumors, a rare soft tissue sarcoma, visit, the only organization in the country dedicated to funding research for desmoid tumors.
