Herbek Hustle Memorial 5K Fun Run

Cost is $45 per runner
Dr. Gene Herbek

Event Description

Gene Herbek, MD, FCAP, was a respected pathologist at Methodist Hospital for nearly 20 years as well as a beloved husband, father and friend. His passing in 2020 was a tremendous loss for his loved ones, patients and colleagues.

Dr. Herbek, a former president of the College of American Pathologists (CAP), was dedicated to laboratory excellence and demonstrated an unfailing kindness that has inspired pathologists around the world. His passion for pathology was matched by his commitment to caring for patients. Together with his wife, Jean, Dr. Herbek founded the See, Test & Treat program through the CAP Foundation. See, Test & Treat brings cervical and breast cancer screenings to women in underserved communities, with exams, tests and results provided on the same day.

Together with Dr. Herbek’s family, we are proud to partner with Methodist Hospital and the CAP Foundation to present the Herbek Hustle 5K Memorial Fun Run on October 2, 2022. We hope you’ll join us – rain or shine – in honoring and celebrating the legacy of our friend Dr. Herbek.
