In 2007, Irene Wing began and coordinated the San Jose WALK FOR A CURE. She continued in that role until she lost her courageous battle with GIST. Her friend Liz Chew, in an effort to honor Irene's memory, took over the event and has continued the effort to help erradicate this devastating disease.
All funds raised go to GCRF to assist in the fight against GIST. It is the goal of the GCRF to provide patient support, generate awareness for GIST and raise funds to support continued research to expand the development and access of important life-saving therapies. GIST is a cancer that has no cure and afflicts thousands of people annually. With your help, research has helped to prolong and improve the quality of life for those coping with this cancer. We can't do it without you! Thank you for your support!

The spirit of Peter Thomas led the way and along with Riette and Dylan Thomas (and Wayne Thomas in tow), the riders began and ended a triumphant journey along the rugged South Africa coast.
It all started in Gordon’s Bay and concluded in Cape Town. It was the toughest and most challenging of the three Peter Thomas Memorial Rides For A Cure. It stretched the riders physically, mentally and emotionally. They crossed fourteen mountain passes and endured gale force headwinds that were so strong that it almost blew the riders off their bikes.
While each cyclist came for a different reason on this trip, the camaraderie and banter amongst the group was certainly a unique experience for many. You do have to ask yourself the question, why some come back to do this grueling ride every three years? Through all the adversity, this fantastic group of GIST Cyclists left their jobs, families and comforts of home to cycle 1,000 miles in 10 days to raise money for the GIST More »
