Welcome to Arun Wiita's Page for Runyon Up!
On Sunday, October 21, I will participate in Runyon Up, the first charitable stair climb to be held at Salesforce Tower – the tallest building in San Francisco. I'll get to climb to the 61st Floor and enjoy the stunning panoramic views from the top – all in support of cancer research.
100% of the money I raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer. The Foundation has longstanding partnerships with leading local research institutions, with nearly 30% of its current funding going to the Bay Area. Over the past 71 years, Damon Runyon has granted nearly $63 million to top young scientists at Stanford, UCSF, UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz. More than 200 scientists who have received funding from Damon Runyon work in the Bay Area, in both academia and biopharma. Damon Runyon has been particularly supportive of my lab's work fighting blood cancers, particularly multiple myeloma.
Please make a donation that supports my climb, and help Damon Runyon scientists reach new heights in the fight against cancer.
You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received!
Thank you for your support.
