PMP Pals is hosting its first-ever in-person 5K run/walk fundraiser! Join us in person on September 14, 2024 at Lady Bird John Park, San Antonio, Texas at 8a. Can’t make it to the Southwest? Run or walk in your neighborhood as a virtual racer. Register here to get started.

When you participate in the PMP Pals’ One-in-a-Million 5K Run/Walk — as a runner, walker, stroller, volunteer, or sponsor —  you’re helping 2,500+ people build the emotional resilience needed to go the distance with Appendix Cancer.  This rare disease affects – you guessed it – one in a million people each year. Get moving on September 14 with your sponsorship of our inaugural race on September 14, 2024…Help us celebrate life against the odds!


San Antonian Sheri Doss is grateful to be alive. Wanting to give back to both her local and peer support cancer communities, Sheri created the One in a Million 5K Run/Walk to celebrate her 60th birthday and life beyond Appendix Cancer (AC) and a related rare condition, Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP). Sheri was diagnosed in 2021 with AC/PMP, which affects a small number but a large cross-section of the world – people of all ages, shapes, genders, and nationalities. After undergoing an intense life-saving surgery, her health returned due, in large part, to her daily walking routine.  Inspired by the role that healthy habits played in her recovery, Sheri intends for this community event to promote healthy habits for all ages and levels of fitness. Sheri thrives because of her positive attitude, love for walking, and the online support she found through PMP Pals. This run/walk is her way of giving back to her Pals and her local community.


Get the name of your business in front of local race participants, their friends and family members, as well as our online, global peer-support community. Join Pals sponsors like the Mike Weber, Sr. Memorial Foundation, Barad & Co., and ACCS, who go the extra mile to make sure PMP Pals has resources available to reach patients and care partners affected by this rare disease. Your monetary donations will help us manage the 5K race/walk logistics; your in-kind sponsorship and donations help us with necessary services and race day goodies! Have questions? Contact Sheri Doss.

YOU ARE ONE IN A MILLION, TOO! We appreciate you and your support making this event one to celebrate. By sponsoring the One in a Million 5K Race/Walk, you officially become an honorary Pal – but you only get one chance in a lifetime to be an Inaugural Year Sponsor – join us today.
