One In A Million 5K Run/Walk Race Description

One In A Million 5K Run/Walk

Lady Bird Johnson Park

10700 Nacogdoches Rd., SATX 78217

8:30 am - Welcome

Race Start Time:  9:00 am

When you race with PMP Pals for the One-in-a-Million 5K Run/Walk, you’re helping us go the distance with Appendix Cancer. This rare disease affects - you guessed it - one in a million people each year. Lace it up and celebrate life against the odds!

San Antonian Sheri Doss is grateful to be alive. Wanting to give back to both her local and peer support cancer communities, Sheri created the One in a Million 5K Run/Walk to celebrate her 60th birthday and life beyond Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP), closely related to appendix cancer. Sheri was diagnosed in 2021 with PMP, a rare disease affecting a small cross-section of the world - people of all ages, shapes, genders, and nationalities. After undergoing an intense lifesaving surgery, her health returned due, in large part, to her daily walking routine. Sheri thrives because of her positive attitude, love for walking, and the online support she found through PMP Pals. Pals inspires Hope among those living with this rare cancer, providing patient and caregiver Messages of HOPE support programs like mentoring, 1-on-1 contact, twice weekly online community meetings, an annual in-person meet-up, card-writing, and medical community outreach. Thanks to the lifesaving standard of care known as CRS/HIPEC, Sheri can appreciate each day with a walk about town and encourages you to get moving on September 14!

Net proceeds from the One in a Million 5K Run/Walk benefit PMP Pals, a global network of patients and caregivers living beyond an Appendix Cancer diagnosis, and related conditions like PMP which affect the gastrointestinal system, digestion, and nutrition. As you run/walk the course at Lady Bird Johnson Park, educational signage explains this rare cancer without a cure on the rise among young people under 40. We'll share information about early diagnosis, lifesaving treatments, and hope-filled inspiration!

We get it - people have things to do, places to go, and people to see, so we’re not filling the rest of YOUR day with other stuff. Come early, get on the start line, run/walk your race, learn a thing or two about appendix cancer/PMP, grab your bling and light grab and go snack, and get on with your day. We’re grateful you’re coming, racing, and moving!
