In 2010, Ali Landes, A08, started the Wendy Walk with her two siblings after their mother, Wendy, was diagnosed with Liposarcoma. The Wendy Walk is the first event created that focuses exclusively on raising money for research of Liposarcoma, a rare form of tissue cancer.
Since 2010, the Wendy Walk has raised more than $1 million to fund research. Annual Wendy Walks now take place in New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami.
The Wendy Walk’s Twitter account offers updates on fundraising and events while also spreading news on advances in liposarcoma research and treatment. Check it out!
