The National Brain Tumor Society is pleased to present the 12th Annual Race for Hope Philadelphia! After a few hiccups during our first year at our new home, we are pleased to say we feel confident this year’s race is going to be our best yet!
Due to the release of the 2017 Eagles schedule, this year’s race will take place on Saturday October 7th in lieu of Sunday the 8th. This is to ensure our participants experience as much ease as possible arriving at and leaving this year’s event.
Upon registration, we encourage you to please share (where indicated) how you intend on arriving at this year’s event. If we have enough parties taking public transportation (uber, cab, Broad St. line etc) we will have shuttles running the length of Broad before and after the race.
Please also note, we have implemented a tiered registration fee schedule. The purpose of this is to encourage early registration so that we can accurately plan for the number of folks who will be joining us on event morning. We want to be prepared for traffic patterns, food/ water and t-shirts/incentives for our wonderful participants. (*note registration fees are constant from year’s past until Labor Day – T-shirt orders are placed 30 days out from the event)
The Race for Hope Philadelphia is a 5K (3.1mi) Timed Race and Walk to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund life-saving brain tumor research and improve the quality of life of all those affected by brain tumors. Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Race for Hope offers individuals and teams an opportunity to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause and help to educate the local community on the diverse needs of brain tumors patients and their families. We hope you will join us in 2017 in the fight against brain tumors!
It’s Your fight. It’s Our fight!
All funds raised through our events allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors.
