Race for Hope Philadelphia


Dov Benjamin Wisnia was diagnosed with a brain tumor February, 2007, at age 27. He died October 31, 2012, at age 33.

Join us to represent and remember Dov on Saturday, October 13, at the 2018 Race for Hope Philadelphia 5K, at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Every year this event was important to Dov. He was hoping that research funded by the National Brain Tumor Society would produce a breakthrough that would add time to his life.

Now his family and friends are continuing his commitment to finding better brain tumor treatment options and possibly a cure for those living with brain tumors now and in the future. Let's support this year's race and fulfill Dov's wish for a research breakthrough.

Join TEAM DOV to walk, run, cheer us on, raise research funds, volunteer, and - most of all - to celebrate the life of Dov Benjamin Wisnia and to find a cure for brain tumors. If you are unable to be with us on October 13, please DONATE to support our efforts.

In Dov's name, we are passionate about this cause and want to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. We need your help in this fight. National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists, and neither will we.

Become a TEAM DOV member or donate by clicking on the JOIN TEAM or DONATE NOW buttons to the right.

Thanks for helping us to create a world without brain tumors.

As Dov would say - Peace and Hamentashen!
