2017 Race for Hope - DC

In her very short life, Caroline Peabody made a tremendous contribution. She was able to donate her pulmonary arteries and heart valves to two young boys and save their lives. She also gave her corneas to two adults and gave them sight. Her donation was a special exception that was not general practice at Children's National Medical Center. With her case, doctors lobbied for policy change and set new standard guidelines that would include her type of donation, Donation After Cardiac Death, and allow for a much greater number of patients to be organ and tissue donors. We miss you Caroline!

Peabody Tumor Trashers

Welcome to the

PEABODY TUMOR TRASHERS!!

This is our 14th year raising funds for brain tumor research. We have developed into a community team connecting several families who have all been affected by brain tumors. Our first race was April 26, 2004, just 3 days before we lost our sweet little Caroline to a brainstem astrocytoma. She was just 15 months old and lived only 63 days after diagnosis. She will always be in our circle of family. We have grown to embrace many families and stories that bring with them the spirit of survival and the sadness of loss.

Aside from the race and following the end of our 10 year run with the Golf for Hope, Chris established his new tournament called Impact Golf, which is in its 3rd year. All funds from the tourney go to Project Impact, a pediatric focused research initiative led by the National Brain Tumor Society. Impact Golf is scheduled for May 5, 2017 at Worthington Manor Golf Club. For more information email:  impactgolfdc@gmail.com.

We are committed to curing brain tumors. We will keep up this work ‘til this work’s finally done.

Thank you for the many, many, years of support.
