Join us on Saturday, June 15th, 2019 for the 13th Annual Making a Difference for Dutch PMP/Appendix Cancer Walk & Pre-Dad's Day 5K.
This event is held annually on Father's Day weekend to increase awareness and create funding for education and research to find a cure for Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP) Cancer, commonly referred to as Appendix Cancer.
The term Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP) has been and still is used to mean a number of different things. This has created much confusion for patients and physicians. Efforts are underway to better define PMP in the medical literature so that there is a better understanding of the term and communication between physicians and patients. Generally speaking, PMP is a rare condition characterized by the presence of mucin in the abdominal cavity. A number of types of tumors can cause PMP, but the most common cause is appendix cancer – including low grade mucinous neoplasms of the appendix.
You can impact PMP/Appendix Cancer Research and education by supporting us at this year's event by:
- Registering and walking or running on Father’s Day
- Supporting someone who is walking or running
- Becoming a captain and forming a Fundraising Team
- Becoming a Walk Sponsor, T-Shirt Sponsor, or Mile Sponsor
- Sponsoring a Mile in “Honor of” or “Memory of” someone affected by PMP/Appendix Cancer.
The PMP Appendix Cancer Awareness Walk is an all-volunteer effort. All proceeds will benefit PMP/Appendix Cancer research and education through the ACPMP Research Foundation 501(c)3.
With your help, we can make a difference!!!
