Johns Hopkins is one of the leading centers in the country treating sarcoma. Last year’s event raised $25,000 with 300 participants. The monies raised from last year’s event supported sarcoma researchers at Johns Hopkins, continue their search for innovative, new treatment options for children and adults with sarcoma.
