Our team, Justin's Brainstormers is participating in our 8th Race for Hope on Sunday, October 2, 2016. The team was originally formed in 2009 in support of Justin Cohen, just 3 months after his diagnosis with Anaplastic Astrocytoma, a Grade 3 malignant brain tumor. Justin fought courageously against this disease for almost 2 years, but we sadly lost Justin on July 19, 2011. He was 30 years old. Everyday we remember Justin as a fun- loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin; an awesome friend to have on your side. He was young and invincible and struck by a devastating disease. Everyday we aim to keep his memory alive by raising funds against this awful disease that took him away from us.
On Sunday, October 2nd, Justin's family and friends come together, not only as a team, but as part of thousands of others in the Philadelphia area whose lives have been affected by brain tumors. We would love nothing more than to have your support on this day by either joining our team to run or walk with us or by supporting us with a monetary donation. Even if you cannot be there on race day, consider joining as a virtual participant (free of charge) to help us fundraise and spread the word. Raising money to help fund brain tumor research is one way that we keep Justin's memory alive, so that maybe another family doesn't have to endure the heartbreak that we've had to endure. Every little bit helps in the fight to find a cure for brain tumors and we greatly appreciate every contribution.I am uniting with others to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. I am passionate about this cause, so I’m taking action. I 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 my effort!
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.
