According to statistics, esophageal cancer has increased 700 percent in the past 4 decades and is considered one of the fastest growing and deadliest cancer in the United States . There are no routine screenings to detect this disease in its early stages, as symptoms such as heartburn and chronic acid reflux are left undetected early on. Please join the Esophageal Cancer Awareness 5K Run/Walk on September 12th at Marine Park to raise awareness for esophageal cancer, honoring all of our angels who have passed away, and supporting those who continue to fight for a cure. With an overall 5-year survival rate of 19.2 percent, we can't do enough to help fund research for early detection of esophageal cancer. So get those kicks out and lace up for a good cause!
All proceeds will go towards The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation.
The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity working to raise awareness, encourage early detection and to fund research of esophageal cancer…in hopes of a cure.™
