In 2010 we started participating in this race to benefit CHLA and the Parker&Friends; Fund Benefiting Pediatric Brain Tumor Research. We are motivated and inspired by Parker Brockway, age 10, who is now a brain tumor survivior after 23 surgeries, 3 years of chemo. Throughout the 7 years since her diagnosis, Parker has worked through all her treatment like a rock star and now with still years of rehab to go she is the strongest, happiest and dedicated athlete we know.
In honor of Parker and all the other approximately 28,00 kids impacted by brain tumors each year we hope to change that statistic and make a difference by supporting research by her neuro oncologists and surgeons at CHLA.
