Recycle for Research 2020

October 2020

While the COVID-19 pandemic hindered our 2020 plans, Stop the Mets will not be stopped.

With respect and sensitivity to the devastating impact of COVID-19, and the financial hardship encountered by so many, we were reluctant to pursue fundraising.
COVID or no COVID, metastatic cancer will continue its destruction
and our researchers will continue their arduous work.

During the lockdown de-cluttering our lives has become a viral sensation. 

So, we challenge you until the end of 2020 to select, sell and give new life to one item that no longer “sparks joy” and kindly donate the funds to Stop the Mets.
