Join us to light Chicago’s nighttime sky with lanterns to symbolize our hope for a cure. Starry Night Chicago will raise funds for research to combat more than 100 types of childhood brain tumors, and will support services for families at Lurie Children's Hospital.

Participants may choose to complete the 8.5K course as an individual or as part of a relay team, with each team member completing one lap. The evening also features a 50-yard dash, other activities for kids and local entertainment. Plus, we’ll highlight the story of a child with a brain tumor diagnosis and honor a local childhood brain tumor hero.
