Strike Out Cancer

Photo from the 4th Annual Strike Out Cancer event

Young Friends from throughout Philadelphia gather at North Bowl to network, mingle, and bowl in support of the novel ideas of early-career cancer scientist and clinicians at Penn's Abramson Cancer Center.

Together we raise funds to support the work of young investigators and clinical fellows, whose brilliant ideas often go unrealized because of a lack in funding. This support is vital to launching the careers of tomorrow's medical leaders who will ensure that our mission to eradicate cancer will be accomplished.

Thank you to all the young friends who joined us to help Strike Out Cancer!

Like us on Facebook to stay informed and promote our mission to help ensure cancer ends with this generation! 

A special thank you goes out to our leading sponsors and silent auction donors!
