Run for Gus 2019

Team Tenacity

On July 25, 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.

We RUN in the memory of Gus and to also HONOR Eli, who was diagnosed with a inoperable spinal cord tumor when he was ten months old. He is now 8 years old and he lives his life with TENACITY. Just like our amazing friends at M STREET PEDIATRIC THERAPY, Eli insprires those around him to be their best possible selves! Go TEAM TENACITY! 

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 and spinal cord tumors can receive the best healthcare possible and the opportunity to reach their greatest potential. Thank you, we are grateful for your support!
