We invite you to join us for the ninth annual Run of Hope Seattle! Last year, over 2,300 participants raised more than $500,000 making 2016 our most successful year ever! Since 2009, we have sent more than $3.4 million to Seattle Children's Hospital for pediatric brain tumor research. We are so proud to host this event each year to demonstrate our gratitude for the fabulous doctors, nurses and researches...but most importantly, to show our support for brain tumor families and their community.
100% of funds raised go directly to pediatric brain tumor research
100% of our committee and event-day team are volunteer

> Each year 3,500 more children—11.5 each day—are diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor in the U.S.
> 72 percent of children diagnosed with a brain tumor are younger than 15.2
> Brain tumors are the deadliest form of childhood cancer. Some tumors, such as atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors and some brain stem gliomas, have survival rates of less than 20 percent
> More than 612,000 people in the U. S. were living with a diagnosis of a primary brain or central nervous system tumor in the United States in 2004.4 Of this number, approximately 28,000 were children with a primary brain tumor.5
We appreciate your commitment to this cause, and look forward to seeing you on September 24th!
