About Miles for Meso

Miles for Meso is a 5K race and fun run and walk for mesothelioma cancer awareness and research. It is an advocacy initiative of the Simmons Mesothelioma Foundation. Since launching in 2009, there have been multiple annual Miles for Meso events in Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Virgina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maine, Washington, Texas, and Florida. Over $650,000 in proceeds from all the races have gone to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to finding better treatment options for this rare and aggressive cancer.

Presented by Simmons Hanly Conroy, our national sponsor, Miles for Meso is a fun and educational event for people of all ages and athletic capabilities!  We're pleased to share that plans for expanding into new communities are underway!
