Running for Research: Pediatric Cancer Survivor Krista

Pediatric cancer survivor Krista Holmes joined the American Association for Cancer Research Runners for Research team at the AACR Rock ‘n’ Roll Philadelphia 5K in 2016 to support lifesaving cancer research.

When she was initially diagnosed with cancer as a child, the survival rate was 50 percent and over the years, through research, the survival rate for this same cancer is now 80 percent. Krista initially got involved with AACR through her company and was immediately hooked with running for this important organization.
