On May 6th, 6,000 individuals gathered on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC to raise funds and awareness in support of the brain tumor community.  An impressive 230 teams participated in this 5K event, raising a record high of $1.4 million to fund the research and patient support programs of Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and the Brain Tumor Society.

More than 60 brain tumor survivors, displaying yellow t-shirts and balloons, kicked off the event in a moving tribute — inspiring everyone to reflect on the significance and
hopefulness of this important cause.

We extend a very special thank you to members of the Race Committee, volunteers, sponsors and participants who made the 10th annual Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers Race for Hope a tremendous success and a meaningful day for all.  For more information, please visit and save the date for next year’s Race for Hope DC on May 4, 2008!
