The DTRF Patient Meeting and Running For Answers 5K Run/ Walk and Kids’ Fun Run occur annually in the fall. Until 2020, our events were live in Philadelphia, and beginning again in 2023, we look forward to running hybrid events.
Running for Answers, founded in 2009, is the annual DTRF signature fundraising event. Held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on the 4th Sunday in September, this special event takes place the day following our annual Patient Meeting. This allows patients, family members and friends to enjoy a full weekend in beautiful Philadelphia, spending a day of informative lectures and roundtables on desmoid tumors, followed by a race/ walk the next day. Participants work to raise donations through their Classy fundraising pages prior to the race. Read the reports of the previous events below. RFA has grown to about 600 participants in 2019.
We look forward to welcoming the community to Philadelphia again in 2023 with a hybrid event.
Save the dates to join us from September 22- 24, 2023!
