Because we can't get together in person, we hope you'll join us virtually for an informal, free 5k run/walk on Saturday, May 9. Just run or walk a 5k on your own at any time on Saturday, as long as you're healthy and it's safe to do so. And if you have a mesothelioma t-shirt, help us spread awareness by wearing it! Then take a photo, share it on social media, tag us (@mothersdaymesorun), and use hashtag: #VirtualMesoRun2020
We look forward to seeing you all in-person again in May 2021.
Stay safe and healthy!
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND MESO RUN
Thank you! Your participation this year will help us spread awareness of mesothelioma.
Why Mother's Day Meso Run?
Mother’s Day Meso Run is dedicated to fighting mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, through an annual 5K run/walk for the public in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, on the Saturday of Mother's Day Weekend. Our inaugural run/walk on May 12, 2018, raised awareness about mesothelioma and allowed us to support the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (Meso Foundation), a registered 501(c)(3) that is close to our hearts. In our first two years, we raised over $25,000 for mesothelioma research. We look forward to seeing everyone virtually at the 3rd Annual Mother's Day Weekend Meso Run on Saturday May 9, 2020. And we look forward to seeing you all in person in 2021. We are pleased to announce that our 2020/21 race beneficiary is also the Meso Foundation.
One of our aims is to educate others about mesothelioma and asbestos.
We are grateful to the Meso Foundation for all of its invaluable information about mesothelioma and treatment options.
In addition, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization provides critical advocacy regarding asbestos use and exposure. We are grateful to ADAO for sharing with us important information regarding the risks of asbestos.
