Run For The Stripes 5K





Run For The Stripes is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes. ​ Our focus is to raise awareness for neuroendocrine cancers, a rare and hard to diagnose cancer, and to raise money to donate to research for this rare cancer.  This year will be the seventh year for the Run For The Stripes 5K run/walk. We continue to grow each year.   It is a great way to be involved with the NET community and the proceeds from the run go to research designated specifically for NET research.

neuroendocrine tumor    (NOOR-oh-EN-doh-krin TOO-mer)
A tumor that forms from cells that release hormones in response to a signal from the nervous system. Some examples of neuroendocrine tumors are carcinoid tumors, islet cell tumors, medullary thyroid carcinomas, pheochromocytomas, and neuroendocrine carcinomas of the skin (Merkel cell cancer). These tumors may secrete higher-than-normal amounts of hormones, which can cause many different symptoms.
