Race for Hope Philadelphia

FJR's Army

"When a warrior goes down, you pick up his shield and play in honor of him..."


Friends and family, welcome!


We are excited to be spearheading a team for the fourth year in a row for the Race for Hope. In the past three years, FJR's Army (formerly known as Frank & Rusty's Army) has raised over $15,000 for brain cancer research. This year we are looking to double our goals from years past and raise $10,000 by race day, October 7!!


Our team, FJR's Army, honors three very special people. Our loved ones are truly our hero's, our warriors, and so we are participating in this year's Race for Hope in their honor. All three of our heroes lost valiant battles with glioblastoma: Frank Sassane passed away on April 28, 2014; Rusty Bullock passed away on April 25, 2014; John Klucsarits Jr. passed away on November 22, 2010.


The Race for Hope Philadelphia is an event to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Race for Hope Philadelphia offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause, and helps to educate the local community on the diverse needs of the brain tumor community.


We are asking for your support, once again, in honor of our loved ones, to help me raise money for the cause. If you can, come join us on our walk. Donate if you have the means. Or more simply, share our message and the message of Frank, John and Rusty's legacy to others who might also want to help.


We are uniting with others to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. We are passionate about this cause and want to take action. We need your help in this fight. National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists - but more needs to be done. Please join in our effort! In every shape and form, cancer touches the lives of millions of Americans. Help us lessen that impact.
