16th Annual Appendix Cancer Awareness Walk (VIRTUAL!)

Our most loved and best attended event is BACK and registration is OPEN! Join us virtually for our 16th Annual Appendix Cancer Awareness Walk. Anyone can participate by walking or running between June 11 -19th anywhere in the world to help raise funds and awareness for appendix cancer and pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP).

We walk each year to provide hope and inspiration to appendix cancer PMP patients/families currently fighting this disease and to let them know that they are not alone. We also walk to honor the memory of those who have passed from appendix cancer and pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP). Coming together one week every year provides hope to all and strengthens the bond within our rare community.

Each virtual registration includes a t-shirt which we encourage registrants to wear when walking during 6/11-6/19. Our walk ranges from families casually walking through their local neighborhoods to larger groups meeting with other members of the ACPMP community.

All proceeds support the Appendix Cancer Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (ACPMP) Research Foundation as we continue to raise awareness and fund meaningful research and education towards finding a cure for appendix cancer. Celebrating our 16th year, our goal is to raise $200,000! Your participation is greatly appreciated.
