10:30 am – 2:00 pm
Almaden Lake Park
Winfield Blvd & Coleman Avenue (Almaden Expy)

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!

Rock Out for a Cure!!! GIST Benefit Concert

The GIST Benefit Concert held in Sunnyvale, CA on January 30th raised $6,000 for the cause.  Our sincere thanks go out to Christy & Ginny Henzi and family (and of course good friends) who put this event together.  And of course a big thank you to those who attended and donated so generously.

And of course our thanks and best wishes go out to Jim Henzi, who was diagnosed with GIST in 2000.  After a 9 year battle and 3 surgeries, he is currently cancer free and we all want to keep it that way!!!
