Callie Bartkowiak and Kara Klomparens will be racing on September 12th at the “Sunrise Side Triathlon” with the goal of raising money for pediatric cancer research in Detroit.

By the age of 20, one child in every 330 children will be diagnosed with cancer and 20-25% diagnosed will never be cured. September is a month to raise awareness for pediatric cancer worldwide. With this is mind, Kara and Callie, current second year medical students at Wayne State University School of Medicine, want to raise money for a Detroit Based organization that supports ongoing pediatric cancer research efforts.
Kids Without Cancer is a local Detroit organization that has raised over $5 million dollars for pediatric cancer research www.kidswithoutcancer.org).

“Kids Without Cancer Zebra Fish Research Initiative” Lab is now conducting research…….
The most exciting endeavor in our 35 year history…… As we enter our 36th year of fundraising, Kids Without Cancer is very proud of the fact we have raised over $4.5 million which has been donated to Children’s Hospital of Michigan and their affiliates, Wayne State University/Karmanos Cancer Institute.
This journey has not been easy. To accelerate progress we at Kids Without Cancer recently decided to take a bold step in our quest to find a cure. The research doctors at Children’s Hospital of Michigan in collaboration with professors from Wayne State University approached Kids Without Cancer with a proposal to start our very own research lab. Our members reviewed the proposal and unanimously approved $356,000 to fund the project for the next 10 years with options to continue beyond.
The lab will be located in the new Wayne State Integrative Biosciences Center (IBio). The lab that will be named the “Kids Without Cancer Zebra Fish Research Initiative” is capable of conducting up to six pediatric cancer research project simultaneously. We have gone live with our first research project in the new lab. We need your support to fund another 5 research projects to take advantage of the labs capability. This lab is our future and will give our children a fighting chance to beat cancer and live a long and prosperous life.
