On June 22, our charity partners at Head for the Cure are bringing back the 5K previously known as the “Bronxville Road Race” to benefit the Children’s Brain Tumor Project at Weill Cornell Medicine. This fundraising effort will help advance research for rare and inoperable pediatric brain tumors, including gliomatosis cerebri, the tumor that took the life of Elizabeth Minter (Bronxville High School Class of 2009). The Children’s Brain Tumor Project was made possible through the efforts of Elizabeth and her family, working with her neurosurgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Greenfield. The campaign known as Elizabeth’s Hope, is now part of a movement that includes dozens of families and like-minded nonprofits from coast to coast — and around the world — whose grassroots efforts have jump-started new collaborative research efforts. We are thrilled that Head for the Cure has joined this movement.
This is a family-friendly event that will also include a Kids Dash. Participants are welcome to walk or run, and we encourage all ages to join us. Sign up as an individual or create a team!
WHEN: Saturday, June 22
TIME: 9AM – 12PM
WHERE: Bronxville High School
