Race For Hope Philadelphia

Sunday, October 2, 2016, The Navy Yard (Marine Parade Grounds) 4747 South Broad St. Philadelphia, PA

The National Brain Tumor Society is pleased to present the 11th Annual Race for Hope Philadelphia! We are excited to share that the event will take place at a new home in 2016, the Navy Yard – Marine Parade Grounds. We are grateful for the many participants who took our year-end survey and provided suggestions on how we might improve the Race for Hope. We are confident our new date and location will provide an incredible participant experience, and hopefully accommodate this event and community’s growing needs.

The Race for Hope Philadelphia is a 5K (3.1mi) Timed Race and Walk to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund life-saving brain tumor research and improve the quality of life of all those affected by brain tumors. Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Race for Hope offers individuals and teams an opportunity to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause and help to educate the local community on the diverse needs of brain tumors patients and their families. We hope you will join us in 2016 in the fight against brain tumors!

It’s Your fight. It’s Our fight!

For those recognizing Rosh Hashanah at Sunset on October 2nd, we anticipate wrapping up our morning program by noon, leaving plenty of time to get home to family and friends.  If due to personal commitments, you are still unable to join us, we hope you will still consider registering as a virtual participant or supporting one of your fellow teams.

All funds raised through our events allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors.
