Run for Gus 2017

ICSJ Dolphins

On July 27, 2017, we will participate in the Young Associates Board’s (YAB) 15th annual Run for Gus 5K Run/1 Mile Walk. All funds raised will go directly to advancing research and support services for patients with brain tumors at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

As you likely know, this disease has directly affected two students at Immaculate Conception St. Joseph School this year. Angela Parial will finish kindergarten this year and is currently undergoing treatment at Lurie Children's for a brain tumor. Crisanto Bello is a second grader who completed chemo at Lurie Children's earlier this spring, and continues to work with the medical team there as he continues his journey to full health.

Our purpose with this event is to show our support for these two wonderful kids, and for the doctors, nurses, researchers and other care-givers who have helped them on their journey. We also want to show their siblings, parents and families that they are not enduring this fight alone.

Pediatric brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children and are frequently fatal. Yet only $1 million is given annually for pediatric brain tumor research by government agencies. YAB has raised more than $1.5 million to date to further this lifesaving cause.

Please support our efforts! Join our team or make a gift today! Any amount will make a difference, and all donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children’s Foundation.

With your help, more children battling brain tumors can receive the best healthcare possible and the opportunity to reach their greatest potential. Thank you!
