About This Activity

Please join us for the 5th annual Run For The Stripes 5K run/walk at the Philadelphia Zoo to raise awareness and funds for research for neuroendocrine (NET) cancers, a rare and hard to diagnose cancer. Proceeds from the race go to NET research to find better treatment options and hopefully a cure for this rare cancer. And when you sign up for the race your entry fee includes admission to the Philadelphia Zoo for the day.
