Welcome to our first Starry Night San Francisco! 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.

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