Recap of the Heinrich Lab’s 2020 GCRF Virtual Fundraiser Walk

We want to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who participated in the Heinrich Lab’s 2020 GCRF Virtual Fundraiser Walk in Portland, Oregon. Although we could not reunite in person to walk with many patients, families, and friends, a few of us were able to gather to show our support for GIST research.  We especially want to express our deep appreciation to the GCRF community for their generous donation of $75,000 this year. With your amazing fundraising efforts, we are able to continue to work hard to find a cure for this devastating disease. Check out the photos and videos of our walk with Dr. Michael Heinrich!

Join the GIST Cancer Research Fund (GCRF) for a virtual fundraiser walk

Oct 17-18th, 2020

The GCRF is a GIST patient-run non-profit (501c3) that has supported the GIST basic research being performed in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Heinrich here at OHSU, as well as numerous other GIST research programs around the US, for nearly two decades. The funds donated to research from the GCRF fund research for improving the care of GIST patients. Without the support of the GCRF, the immense progress that has been made in improving GIST patient care at OHSU would not have been possible. Please invite family and friends to participate in this virtual walk. Choose you own date and distance for the walk and recruit sponsors.
