Reps for Research owes its existence to the forward thinking of Hoosier Cancer Research Network (HCRN) chairman Christopher A. Fausel, PharmD.

A faithful participant in the annual Arnold 5K Pump and Run event in Columbus, Ohio, Chris created Reps for Research in 2015 as a way to challenge his friends and colleagues to support investigator-initiated research through HCRN. The challenge is held in conjunction with the Pump and Run event.

In 6 years, Reps for Research has raised more than $23,000 to support innovative clinical studies conducted by Hoosier Cancer Research Network. Jeanne Schilder, MD, a gynecologic oncologist at the Indiana University School of Medicine, joined the Reps for Research challenge in 2018. She has competed in the Arnold 5K Pump and Run event since 2010.
