We are very proud to announce that ALL of the net funds raised for this event have always been and will continue to be dedicated strictly to Sarcoma Research. Fifty percent of funds raised will benefit the Sarcoma Research Grant Fund through Sarcoma Foundation of America. These research grants are carefully selected and awarded to Sarcoma Researchers nationwide each year. The other 50% will benefit Dr. Brian Van Tine's Sarcoma research lab with Siteman Cancer Center at Washington University School of Medicine. Please see a description of both of these wonderful organizations below:
Sarcoma Foundation of America is the leading voice for sarcoma patients, survivors and those who care about them. Since 2000, we have worked tirelessly to advocate for increased research to find new and better therapies with which to treat patients with sarcoma. Sarcoma Foundation of America has funded over $7 million in translational research to help eradicate sarcoma, collaborating with many of the most promising minds in sarcoma research.
Sarcoma Foundation of America also provides a voice to those individuals affected by this rare forgotten cancer through research advocacy and patient education.

Dr. Brian Van Tine’s Sarcoma Research at Siteman Cancer Center:
We study cancer metabolism using metabolomics to develop novel therapeutic strategies for rare tumors. Sarcomas are group of over 100 types of tumors of mesenchymal origin that can be divided into 2 categories: soft tissue sarcomas and bone sarcomas. We have demonstrated that argininosuccinate synthase 1 (ASS1) is lost in 88% of all sarcomas. This is an exploitable biomarker that correlates with poor prognosis for sarcoma. When ASS1 is not expressed, arginine becomes an essential amino acid that must be delivered by the diet. We are testing whether the ASS1-deficiency of sarcomas may be exploited using the arginine-lowering agent, pegylated arginine deiminase (ADI-PEG20) in vitro and in animal models. By exploiting autophagy induction, we hope to cause cell death using this agent in combination with others. In addition, we have identified other duel metabolic therapies that can be used instead of chemotherapy that also lead to cell death. Finally, we are launching an omics project in angiosarcoma this year to identify new targets for therapy by looking at the metabolome, phosphor-proteome, and DNA and RNA genome of patients.
