Thank You to Our 2017 Sponsors!

It is said that the greatest gift is one which is given anonymously, giving when you do not know whether you will get direct personal benefit. Medical Heroes give us this unique gift.

Medical Heroes are the individuals who help advance public health and medical knowledge by taking part in clinical research trials. They are found in everyday places, and they deserve our support and gratitude. Proceeds from this event provide education and outreach to patients and their families. Our impact is powered by your generosity and dedication to our cause.
