Join us to light Boston’s nighttime sky with lanterns to symbolize our hope for a cure. Starry Night Boston will raise funds for research to combat more than 100 types of childhood brain tumors, and will support services for families at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

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.
