The Race for Hope - DC presented by Cassidy Turley raises funds to support innovative research initiatives and support services for brain tumor patients and their families. This amazing event relies on the dedication and enthusiasm of individuals, families, teams, volunteers, sponsors and donors. Thank you for your support in helping us find a cure for brain tumors!
I am very proud and honored to be the Team Captain for Team Lester, named after my best friend, Anna Asher Lester. Anna was diagnosed in April 2009 and lost her fight against brain cancer on November 15, 2010. When Anna found out she was sick, she immediately went into "fight mode" and never looked back. For 19 months, Anna fought a fight she knew she probably wouldn't win, but she did so with grace, dignity, and strength. She never complained and she never quit - she just took it day by day as best she could. She really was and continues to be an inspiration to me and so many others.
