Virtual Miles for MESO 2020

This year we held a VIRTUAL Miles for Meso run / walk in order to keep the annual tradition going.

Since the first Miles for Meso in 2009, race participants have ran a total of 16,267 miles, and the event has raised over $650,000 for mesothelioma research. The race has become a fun, family-friendly way to raise awareness about mesothelioma and the dangers of asbestos.

Organizations that have received these funds are the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (The Meso Foundation), the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) and PENN Medicine’s mesothelioma program.
