The inaugural running of the Bronxville Road Race for the Children’s Brain Tumor Project will take place on September 13, 2014. All proceeds benefit pediatric brain tumor research at Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center. The CBTP focuses on the research and treatment of rare and inoperable brain tumors that affects children and young adults. The CBTP was founded, in part, with the generous support of Elizabeth Minter (Bronxville High School Class of 2009) and her family, longtime residents of Bronxville. Elizabeth was diagnosed with gliomatosis cerebri in 2010 and lost her battle with the disease in 2012.
Courses: The 5-mile course will start and end near the playing fields of the Bronxville School. There will also be a 2.2 mile short course for runners, walkers, those walking dogs, and parents with baby strollers; there will also be a 1-mile “Kids Crush Cancer” Dash (parents may accompany small children for no additional charge).
Cost: Early registration is $35 for the 5-mile run and the 2.2 mile short course. Kids can participate in the dash for $10 each (no additional charge for parents who run with their children). Race fees will increase closer to the event
** Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $250 each from sponsors to help us reach our GOAL of $100,000 for this event. You will be directed to a fundraising page after you complete your registration, or you may visit it at https://rally.org/cbtp/start
You can also volunteer today to help register runners, to hand out water, staff the gear check area, line the race route, give directions, and all kinds of things to help this event be a success!
