Day at the Races – September 2018


The Esophageal Cancer Education Foundation will hold it’s 15th Annual Day at the Races at Monmouth Race Track  in Oceanport, New Jersey on Sunday September 9, 2018.

A very special element has been added to this year’s event in that we are honoring Dr. Manjit Bains our friend, colleague and surgeon on his retirement from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and his over 40 years of service to patients and their families. Further, all funds raised from this event will be used to establish The Esophageal Cancer Fund (ECF) which Dr. Bains has agreed to oversee.  The mission of ECF will be to identify and fund esophageal cancer research projects that show promise, patient programs and  training.

Reservations are being accepted. Tickets for this event are limited and it is strongly suggested you reserve your place for this truly special day soon. Information on sponsorship and how to purchase tickets is below.
