About the event:

Rhode Island's 11th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run is hosted by The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity working to raise awareness, encourage early detection and to fund research of esophageal cancer...in hopes of a cure.™

In 2015, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation was able to award esophageal cancer research funding for the very first time.  Then in November, 2018, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation awarded esophageal cancer research funding for the second time!  

The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation has also raised national AND international awareness since 2011. Your continued support directly impacts and sustains this mission!

The path at Warwick City Park is approximately three miles and guests are encouraged to walk or run at their own pace as the event is a walk/run and not a timed race.

Please Note:

Guests must adhere to all current Rhode Island COVID-19 guidelines issued by the State of Rhode Island.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the current COVID-19 pandemic, the event may be cancelled. In the event of a cancellation, no refunds will be issued. If the event is cancelled and if registered for a t-shirt, an email with instructions on how to pick up the t-shirt will be sent. T-shirts will not be mailed.

The former address at Warwick City Park was: Asylum Road, Warwick, RI.  The new address is Steven O'Connor Blvd., Warwick, RI.

Registration begins at 8 AM EST, walk/run to follow at 9 AM EST.

Learn the facts about esophageal cancer

-Esophageal cancer has increased over 733% in the past four decades and is considered the fastest growing cancer in the US and western world.

-Risk factors include:  

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD, acid reflux, chronic heartburn),
  • obesity,
  • poor nutrition,
  • tobacco use,
  • excessive alcohol use,
  • Barrett’s esophagus.

-As one of the deadliest cancers, esophageal cancer has an overall 5 year survival rate of only 19.9%.

-There are no routine or standard screenings to improve early detection of esophageal cancer.

-Symptoms often arise late, once the cancer is considered advanced or “distant” (spread to lymph nodes and other organs.)

-Stage IV esophageal cancer has a survival rate of only 5.2%.

-In 2022, an estimated 20,640 will be diagnosed and there will be an estimated 16,410 deaths.

-Despite all of these facts, esophageal cancer research is extremely underfunded.
