2012 South Florida Miles For Meso
Miles for Meso is a national series of races, fun runs and walks to support mesothelioma awareness and research. Mesothelioma is a rare and agressive form of cancer most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos. While mesothelioma treatments are improving, there is no known cure for the disease and more funding is needed to support medical research in this field.
For the second consecutive year, Sokolove Law and the Ban Asbestos Now advocacy program will join communities, institutions and mesothelioma patients in taking a collective stand against asbestos-related diseases at the 2012 South Florida Miles for Meso.
