Run for Gus 2019

K. Finn

On July 25th 2019, we will participate in the Young Associates Board’s (YAB) 17th 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.

I am participating to honor the life of Patrick McNamara. At the age of 2, Patrick was diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor. During his short life, Patrick endured more than 15 brain surgeries, multiple rounds of chemotherapy, and countless radiation treatments. Through it all, Patrick never lost his winning spirit and love for family and friends. Patrick died at the age of 13 from the ravages of the disease.

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. Thank you!
