2018 Race For Hope - DC

The Ellie Birds


Dear Friends & Family:  It's hard to believe that this July Nina and I will mark 15 years since we lost our beloved mom, Ellie Santos, to brain cancer. To think of all of the life she missed out on is unbelievably sad.  We hope that some day there will be a cure for brain cancer, especially gliobastomas, the most aggressive form of brain cancer which cut Ellie's life so short. 

With a cure as our goal, Nina and I are keeping up with our participation in the Race for Hope, which raises funds to support innovative research initiatives and provide information for brain tumor patients and their families. This amazing event relies on the dedication and enthusiasm of individuals, families, teams, volunteers, sponsors and donors. We hope you will support us by joining team Ellie Birds, or making a donation to the team.  

The Race for Hope takes place on Sunday, May 6, 2018, at Freedom Plaza (Pennsylvania Ave, NW) at 9AM.  We hope you will join us to walk or run, and if you can't be with us, we welcome donations in any amount to our team.  This year we are excited to have some very special guests joining us for the walk, from as far as Boston, California and London!

Thank you for your support in helping us find a cure for brain tumors!

With love and thanks,

Christa, Nina and families
