Basehoar's Brainiacs & Maine-iacs!


Dear Friends & Fam, 

On Sunday, May 7th, BASEHOAR’S BRAINIACS & MAINE-IACS! will join hundreds of other teams and thousands of walkers and runners at the 20th Annual Race For Hope in Washington DC!  This will be our team’s 8th Race in our beloved Richie’s honor. We have raised an incredible amount of money over the years, $105,000.00 to be exact, in an effort to rid the world of brain cancer, the insidious disease that takes no prisoners and robs us of those we love. 

Just a few hours after we launched our 2017 Team Page, we learned that my dear friend Clara Deena Neptin Brown passed away after her 19 month battle with this stinkin' brain cancer. Clara was quite the warrior, and like Rich she inspired us, made us laugh and made us realize that life is fragile, fleeting and oh so precious. May her memory be eternal. 

And so, another aching reminder that this is why we walk . . . it’s about our beloved Richie, his cousin Howard, my buddy Clara and her older brother Billie, all of whom left this world much too soon. It's about thousands of people we don't even know who are stricken with this stinkin' brain cancer.

Please join our team on Sunday May 7th at Race For Hope DC! If you are unable to join us on the day of the Race, please support our team with a donation that will ultimately help us find a cure.

Many thanks to all of you who continue to keep Richie alive in your hearts. It means the world to me.
