The inaugural Defeat DIPG Superhero Sprint & 6K, held on May 29, 2016, was a wonderful success, raising over $127,000! Over 800 people registered for the 6K, 1K or Tot Sprint, and another 50 virtual runners sent their support from afar. We had an incredible crew of volunteers, event staff, and spectators who also joined in the fun. We give special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Headfirst Summer Camps, for their dedication to the cause and efforts to make the event fun and special for all.
The morning was filled with friendship, hope, and inspiration in the fight for a cure to DIPG. We honored many of our childhood cancer heroes through our Salute Our Superheroes Wall. We were so fortunate to bring together so many families who have been in this fight and continue to raise their voices and take action to fight childhood cancer.
This event would not have been possible without our awesome volunteers and our incredibly supportive event sponsors. Our Community Partner, Westfield Montgomery, provided invaluable assistance. We thank Tommy McFly from the Tommy McFly Show on 94.7 Fresh FM for serving as our emcee for the event!
Please take time to check out this complete list and support these businesses who have partnered with us in the fight against DIPG brain tumors. We can’t wait for 2017! Stay tuned for details!
