The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation hosted the 6th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at Warwick City Park. The annual events aim to raise awareness and funding for esophageal cancer advocacy and research.
We would like to thank everyone who helped make Rhode Island’s 6th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run a great success! Thank you to all of the walkers, runners, sponsors, volunteers and donors! We look forward to more events in the future to further this mission in support of awareness, early detection and research funding for esophageal cancer!
Due to the success of previous fundraising events, The Salgi Foundation was able to award esophageal cancer research funding for the very first time in July 2015! This goal was achieved in less than five years since the charity first founded. This research was accepted by the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Institute Council and was presented as a poster presentation during Digestive Disease Week (DDW) held in Chicago, IL in May, 2017. While this was a major accomplishment, there is still so much more work that needs to be done and worthy research that needs to be funded.
Volunteers are needed for the 2018 event. Please contact us for information! SALGI.org/volunteer
