Starry Night is a national walk/run fundraiser that shines a light on one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer. Proceeds benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, the world’s largest nonprofit funder of research into this devastating disease. 

Participants may choose to complete the 8.5K walk/run course as individuals or as part of a two-person relay team, with each person completing one of the two laps. Each step of the 28,000-foot course represents an American child living with a brain tumor.

Starry Night events take place in the evening and include a 50-yard dash for kids, entertainment, food and plenty of fun for the whole family! The highlight of the night is a lantern-lighting ceremony to symbolize hope for a cure and to honor our Stars, children with brain tumors.
