Race for Hope Philadelphia

Miles for Mom

Carole Coyne - beloved mom, grandmom, sister, aunt, and friend - died 7 years ago on July 28, 2010 from a brain tumor the size of a baseball.  She was only 67 years old.  The type of tumor she had was said to be one that forms in children.  It was believed that she had lived with this tumor most of her life and it grew slowly undetected.  Since Carole's death, her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, sister, and friends have walked/run in the Race for  Hope on the team they formed in her honor, Miles for Mom. 




We raise money for brain tumor research so that other families do not have to go through what we went through.  This will be the 6th year that our team, Miles for Mom, will be participating in the Race for Hope in Philadelphia on Saturday, October 7, 2017.  Please join us by walking/running or donating, and help us keep our mom's memory alive by helping others who are faced with the burden of this devastating disease.


Thank you,

Team Miles for Mom
