This event was established to honor the memory and legacy of Albert R. Taxin, a beloved Philadelphian who died in 1993 of a brain tumor. All proceeds from the Classic support the work in the Albert R. Taxin Brain Tumor Research Center at The Wistar Institute.

Basic scientific research is the crucial first step toward new and better treatments for cancer and all diseases. As one of only six basic research centers in the US that is an NCI-designated Cancer Center, The Wistar Institute is a trailblazer; the discoveries its scientists have made and continue to make change lives everywhere, and every day.

Through the support of the Taxin Classic, we are helping to fuel this engine of discovery.

Kicking off the event with Doris Taxin
