Love running, hate cancer? Volunteer for the Starry Night 8.5K Commitee today!
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is the leading nonprofit funder of research into one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer. Our programs also include free educational resources, college scholarships for brain tumor survivors, emergency financial aid and mission-focused events such as Ride for Kids and the Starry Night 8.5K. Brain tumors are the leading cause of solid tumor cancer death in children between the ages of 0-19. More than 28,000 young people in the United States are living with the diagnosis of a brain tumor, and nearly 13 new cases are identified each day. To help us cure the kids, call 800-253-6530 or go to www.curethekids.org .
The Starry Night 8.5K is in its third year in Boston and we are looking to expand our network of commitee members to make a bigger impact, for the kids!
If you are interested in joining the commitee or have any questions, please email BShade@curethekids.org.
