7th Annual Wilmot Warrior Walk

August 15, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

- $7 – $40

UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute is the region’s leader for cancer care and research. A component of Strong Memorial Hospital, Wilmot Cancer Institute provides specialty cancer care services at the University of Rochester Medical Center and a network of locations throughout the Rochester and Finger Lakes region. Wilmot includes more than 100 physicians who specialize in a particular type of cancer as well as more than 200 oncology nurses. Additionally, a team of more than 100 scientists at Wilmot investigate many aspects of cancer, with an emphasis on understanding the biology of cancer, finding better treatments for various types of cancer, and studying ways to improve quality of life for those living with cancer.

Funds raised through the Wilmot Warrior Walk contribute to:

■■ Cancer research at Wilmot including seed grants that help local researchers begin new scientific studies.
■■ Wilmot’s Judy DiMarzo Cancer Survivorship Program which ensures those who have gone through cancer treatment have access to resources they need at Wilmot and in the community.
