Run for Gus 2017

Meera's Marchers

Hello Meera Marchers!!

We would be honored to have you participate with us this year in memory of our sweet Meera Belle. We are also excited and grateful to have all of you annual participants return to us again. This is the fourth year we have done this together and it is hard to believe we've been without Meera for so long. We miss her terribly and I know many of you do too. This event is right up her alley so it feels good to do our part and to have a bunch of fun while we are at it! Let's honor our dearest Meera by raising funds for research!

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

Pediatric brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children and are fatal for almost half of those diagnosed. 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 by making 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. 

Love and Gratitude,

Meera's Family
