Shining light on children with brain tumors

The Starry Night 8.5K walk/run supports the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s efforts to help kids fighting the deadliest form of childhood cancer. This uplifting event shines a light on the 28,000 children and teens in the United States who are living with a brain tumor, and on the kids who are no longer with us.

Join us in taking 28,000 steps in this 8.5K to raise funds for lifesaving medical research and life-changing family support programs!


At each evening event, participants will light lanterns to symbolize hope for a cure and to honor our Stars, children with brain tumors.
