Shining light on children with brain tumors

Starry Night is a national walk/run fundraising campaign of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation that builds a community of support for kids battling one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer.

More than 28,000 children in the United States are living with a brain tumor. Each of the 28,000 steps in Starry Night’s 8.5K walk/run shines light on their illness and raises much-needed funds for lifesaving medical research and life-changing family support programs.

There are lots of ways to help! Form a fundraising team with friends, families and colleagues, or sign on as a volunteer or corporate sponsor.

Your efforts will be celebrated at Starry Night walk/runs. At each evening event, participants will light the nighttime sky with thousands of lanterns to symbolize hope for a cure and honor our Stars, children with brain tumors.

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.
