Ben's Brain Group

This is the team site for the Ben's Brain Group that is participating in the Race for Hope – DC on Sunday, May 5th, 2019.

I chose the team name “Ben’s Brain Group” as it is also the name of the Facebook group where family and friends were kept up to date on Ben’s progress and status since his diagnosis in May of 2016.

For over two and a half years Ben endured two surgeries, two rounds of radiation, immunotherapy, various methods of chemotherapy, as well as countless hours of physical, occupational and speech therapy. Throughout it all he always kept his positive “We do it” attitude, always believing that he would come out on top.

In wanting to keep his positive spirit alive, we want this race to become an annual tradition for family and friends to get together to remember him, but also to help raise money to continue the fight to cure all brain tumors.

Please join our team or donate to the team or a member of the team to show your support.  


Ben’s Brain Group also has team t-shirts available that you can order and wear the day of the event! Go to this link on Custom Inc. to order today: https://www.customink.com/g/ctg0-00br-wspt.

If you cannot participate at the race but want to fundraise, you can become a virtual walker and set up your own fundraising page.

The Race for Hope - DC presented by Cushman & Wakefield raises funds to support innovative research initiatives and provide information for brain tumor patients and their families through the National Brain Tumor Society and ABC2.   

This amazing event relies on the dedication and enthusiasm of individuals, families, teams, volunteers, sponsors and donors.

Thank you for your support to find a cure for brain tumors. WE DO IT!
