BENEFITING: PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 18, 2014
Thousands of children are diagnosed with cancer each year. One-third of those children are diagnosed with brain tumors, and nearly half of those brain tumors are gliomas. Over 97% of children with the worst of the gliomas, diffuse pontine gliomas, die within three years. We cannot ignore this shocking statistic, and we hope that you won’t either. We need your help.
On Sunday, May 18, 2014, our Sunflower Striders Marathon Team will be participating in the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon to help raise money for glioma research. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Prayers From Maria Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit charity. The money we raise will go directly to funding research pediatric high-grade gliomas.
The Prayers from Maria Foundation is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors known as gliomas; raising public awareness about gliomas and bringing hope to children and their families who deal with the hardships of this disease.
