On June 15, hundreds of academic and industry scientists, patients, advocates, and healthcare professionals donned white apparel for our sixth annual Wear White Day to raise awareness for lifesaving cancer immunotherapy research.
Across social media, our supporters—including AstraZeneca, Merck, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the Parker Institute, and YouTube star Jun Sung Ahn—used #WearWhite to share why they chose to stand with science and the search for immune-based cures.
Here at CRI, our staff proudly wore white shirts, as did the Fearless Girl statue just outside our headquarters. Below, here are a few of our favorite posts from Wear White Day.
