Join us at the Starry Night 5K, an evening walk/run that gives hope to children and their families fighting the deadliest form of childhood cancer. This uplifting event shines a light on the more than 28,000 kids nationwide living with a brain tumor, while honoring the children and teens no longer with us. The course will include a shorter distance for walkers and there’s even a children’s 50-yard dash. Anyone can help us cure the kids!

Following the walk/run, enjoy food, music, entertainment and fun for the whole family. The event will close as participants light the nighttime sky with lanterns to show support and hope for a cure. This beautiful and meaningful ceremony brings you together with the families you’re helping, and as a community we demonstrate our commitment to curing the kids.

The funds you raise through Starry Night 5K fund critically needed research into the more than 100 types of childhood brain tumors and provide support services for local families. Navigating a brain tumor diagnosis is one of the hardest things a parent can do. Your funds will help provide educational materials, financial support and other resources for families fighting for their child’s life.

Starry Night 5K events rely heavily on local partners to help spread the word about the deadliest form of childhood cancer. If you’re interested in learning more about how your company or business can help cure the kids, contact us!
