The Story

EVENT DATE: May 21, 2017

     Brian Demchak and his mother Tina competed in the St. Margaret Foundation 5K for years in spite of imitations Brian was born with. Brian didn’t learn to walk until he was three and with that victory he never looked back. Brain died in 2016 at the age of 57, but his spirit lives on. St. Margaret is honored to have cared for Brian and to have had him compete and win his category of the Foundation’s annual 5K race. This year the race was renamed in his memory: The Brian Demchak Hope Run 5K Run/Walk.
     Proceeds from the race fill in the gaps with hope for patients at St. Margaret who are struggling with some of the biggest challenges of their lives. Areas of need include: transportation to chemotherapy, radiation and other treatments, insulin, medical devices, medication, walkers, hearing aids, food pantry, support groups for Alzheimers, COPD, and Stroke, Health Fairs, Immunizations and more.
