Polly's Run Raises More than $53,000 for Pancreatic Cancer Research
Polly’s Run is named for Polly Rogers, a healthy non-smoking mother of three boys who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2009, just 11 months after her diagnosis. That year, her sons and best friend started Polly’s Run to honor her memory and to raise money and awareness for pancreatic cancer research. The 10th annual Polly’s Run event took place on June 2, 2019 at Tiguex Park.
Polly’s Run has raised more than $250,000 over the past ten years. All funds raised by Polly’s Run benefit the Polly Rogers Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund at The University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center.
