The 5k run and dog walk will take place on the beautiful Cynwyd Heritage Trail in Bala Cynwyd, PA.

With your support we are looking to more than double last year's total. Lung cancer has a LOWER survival rate than Breast, Colon, and Prostate cancer combined and is very underfunded. Storm the Castle was inspired by Martin Kallish, a marathon runner and former marine who was diagnosed in 2008 with stage 4 lung cancer. Marty is LIVING seven years after his diagnosis due to cutting edge research and series of new trial drugs.
