  community member   < less

The annual Stomp Out Sarcoma Fun Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, July 15, 2018, at Hudson Mills Metropark in Dexter, Michigan. Join us for fun, exercise, and to support the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center. This event is all about bringing community members together with doctors, patients, nurses, physician assistants, patients' family members, nurse practitioners, and researchers outside the hospital, united in one cause: fighting sarcoma. Sarcoma is a rare connective tissue malignancy (cancer) that affects people of all ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, races, and ethnicities. Sarcomas make up about 1% of all adult cancers. Due to this rarity, patients often feel isolated after being diagnosed and throughout treatment. All proceeds from the fun run/walk will go to the Sarcoma Clinical Research Fund at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center, to help researchers and clinicians better understand this disease and find more effective treatments.

  community member   < less Nandita Godbole, author

Once an Ann-Arbor resident and cooking instructor, author Nandita Godbole brings her life-inspired food fiction to Matthaei Botanical Gardens this weekend.
'Not For You: Family Narratives of Denial & Comfort Foods' (Turmeric Press, 2017, 2018) is a two part multigenerational novel that combines the intrigue and arm-chair drama of historical fiction with the flavorful nuances of an engaging food novel. It begins in pre-independence India of the late 19th century, travels through the mid-west, including Ann Arbor, and ends in metro Atlanta, in 2015. This book, nicknamed NFY, includes seventy traditional Indian recipes to represent the different women from the stories. The narratives also explore how people's connection to the land and Nature, influences their lives and emotional well-being.
NFY was unique honored, and featured on NBC Asian America, twice (2016 & 2018). A portion of proceeds from the book sales from this event will benefit the Botanical Gardens.
