Starry Night Chicago

Welcome to our first Starry Night Chicago! This is one in a series of events the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation is launching in major cities across the country. Join us to fundraise for this 8.5K walk/run to shine a light on the 28,000 American children living with a brain tumor.

  • When: October 4, 2014
  • Where: Arlington Park International Racecourse
  • Map: Google Map

Registration at 3 - 4 p.m. Walk/run starts at 4:30pm

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.

The walk/run can be completed individually or as a two-person relay. 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.
