Cancer research and awareness were the beneficiaries on 9 October, 2012, when Santa Fe Group (www.thesantafegroup.com) held its 9th Annual Charity Run in Washington DC, USA.
Thanks to all the runners who took part this year
All proceeds from this event will be used to fund cancer research at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. One of only 40 cancer centers in the United States designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a comprehensive cancer center, the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center has active programs in clinical research, laboratory research, education, community outreach, and prevention and control.

“Our Charity Run is an event that Santa Fe employees and our industry partners look forward to each year,” says Robert Cormier, Managing Director of Santa Fe Malaysia. “We established The Johns Hopkins Fund almost a decade ago and we are very much proud of this initiative. Johns Hopkins is one of America’s preeminent health care institutions, and its researchers have made a tremendous contribution in deciphering the mechanisms of cancer and discovering new treatments. We are thrilled to be able to contribute to Hopkins’ work in this area. The Charity Run helps us not only raise money for the cause and the fund, but also to build the hope that one day cancer will be defeated and many human lives saved.”
