Mark's Noggin' Joggers
Mark’s Noggin Joggers was created in 2011 when Mark Michel was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. The Race for Hope is a 5k Walk/Run that is sponsored by the National Brain Tumor Society. In 2012, shortly after we participated in our first Race for Hope, Mark Michel passed away after a courageous and hard fought battle with brain cancer.
Mark’s family set out on a mission to help his legacy live on by creating Mark’s Noggin Joggers. Each year, we host a benefit in memory of Mark, with all proceeds being directly donated to the National Brain Tumor Society in his name. Please join us at the Navy Yard to help raise awareness for all those who are suffering from this terrible disease.
National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding a cure for brain tumors. They are aggressively driving strategic research and advocating for public policies that meet the critical needs of the brain tumor community. Your support ensures this important work will continue.
