2011 Event - New York City
As its annual event for 2011, the PNB Fund held a benefit luncheon in New York City on January 22, 2011. At the luncheon, the PNB Fund was pleased to have Dr. Marc Ladanyi of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center present an update of his groundbreaking research on synovial sarcoma, which has been supported in part by the PNB Fund.


2010 Event - Istanbul, Turkey

In October 2010, a group of about 45 people traveled from various parts of the world joined together to join in the Istanbul marathon, raising funds for the PNB Fund. Participants variously chose to run/walk in the 8k, 15k, or full marathon.

Most participants chose to then stay on in Turkey for a planned group trip around some of the country’s most historical sites.

2009 Event – Central Park, New York

2009's event took place in New York City. Participants joined hundreds of other runners/walkers in beautiful Central Park for the 5K Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research. All money contributed to the Fund in connection with the run/walk was earmarked to support synovial sarcoma research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Following the run, the PNB Fund hosted a benefit lunch at Pasha Restaurant, a few blocks from the Park.
