All of the funds raised at the Walk for Thomas go directly to the Alberta Children¹s Hospital Foundation and in particular the Thomas Mueller Phage Display Project. This project is led by the lab of Dr. Paul Beaudry at the University of Calgary and is exploring new approaches to improve the diagnostics and therapeutic options for children with high risk neuroblastoma.
