About us

"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”
― Sam Levenson
The Penny F. Garrett Sarcoma Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organized in 2010 to raise awareness and much-needed funding for research for all rare cancers.
Through the Creeper Trail Ride to End Cancer, we have contributed over $1.25 million dollars for rare cancer research.


100% of funds raised will be sent to The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX.
