Starry Night, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s new walk/run that shines a light on children with brain tumors, made its Boston debut on Oct. 18 with the support of 225 participants. At start time, the event had raised $27,245.
The crowd came to the 8.5K at Joe Moakley Park to honor local children with brain tumors. These Stars were Cheyanne, Evan, Lindsay and Quinn.
“I loved this night,” said fundraiser Stacia Boynton of Friends of Jaclyn. “It was so emotional and special to be a part of.”
Participants lit hundreds of lanterns at the end of the event to honor children affected by a brain tumor diagnosis.
A portion of Starry Night Boston’s proceeds will be donated to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for a family services program for children with brain tumors. The Starry Night Hero Award went to the Pediatric Resource Program Team at Boston Children's Cancer Center.
Nancy Chen of 7NBC WHDH-TV emceed the event and Modern Entertainment, Static Noyze, Uprising Dance Crew, Alec Hutson and Paradigm entertained the crowd.
As of Oct. 18, the top individual fundraiser was Isabella Brown ($2,843), and the top team fundraiser was Evan’s Entourage ($3,806). The event will continue to raise funds online until Nov. 18.
Thank you to the dedicated volunteers who organized the event.
