After the walk/run, you and your fellow supporters will light the nighttime sky with lanterns to symbolize hope for a cure for one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer.

The evening also features a kids’ 50-yard dash, family activities and other entertainment. Plus, we’ll highlight the stories of local Stars.

Starry Night 8.5K events raise funds for research to combat more than 100 types of childhood brain tumors. They also support services for families at a local hospital or community organization.

Starry Night 8.5K events rely heavily on local partners to help spread the word about one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer. If you’re interested in learning more about Starry Night partnership opportunities, contact us!
