Sam Beres Run/Walk

This event is held in memory of Sam Beres, who lost his two-year battle with leukemia in April 2000 at the age of six.

The 2018 Sam Beres Run/Walk was a great success and we look forward to celebrating 20 YEARS in 2019! 

Proceeds from the event support leukemia and other cancer research being conducted by David A. Margolis, MD, Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Medical College of Wisconsin.

The fund's name, the Sam Memorial "HOOT" Fund, reflects its goal to turn Hematologic Oncology Treatment (HOT) units into "Happily Out Of Tenants" (HOOT) units. Since 2000, St. Agnes has raised more than $202,000 for leukemia research at MCW.

Since 2000, Sam's family and friends have raised more than $350,000 for research at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
