VIBIN' 4 JESS

JOIN US As We Bring "Good Vibes" For Jessica!

Jessica is a beloved friend of many in the Denver area. She’s an avid runner and hiker and often organizes groups and adventures across the city. She is known for her charming, upbeat “vibe” – even in the midst of the most serious brain tumor diagnosis she could imagine. She has asked her friends and family to use her experience as a “wake up call” in their own lives. Life is short, and so full of opportunities. She wants all of us to step out of our comfort zones and do the things we dream of.

Life can change in the blink of an eye. Read about her story.

How it Works

Vibin' 4 Jess is a four-week-long virtual challenge that doesn't require any running!  Instead, you'll participate in a new challenge each week that shows your support for Jessica by raising money for brain tumor research, and celebrating all of the silliness, messiness and wonder of your own life. 

 

Participants will have a new challenge each week revealed on Fridays.  These challenges are different than anything we have done before, and of course there are PRIZES!!!

 

  • Week 1: Week of Inspiration
  • Week 2: Week in the trenches
  • Week 3: Week of Silliness
  • Week 4: A tribute to Jess

Help us raise Money for Brain Tumor Research!

We are partnering with the University of Colorado, Department of Neurosurgery to help them raise money for research to find a cure one day.

 

  • 80,000 people are diagnosed with primary brain tumors each year.  30% of these are malignant and treatment options are limited
  • 200,000 people are diagnosed annually with brain tumors that have spread from cancer in some other part of their body.
  • 700,000 people are living with a brain tumor diagnosis right this minute.

 

Their program of Excellence in Neuro Oncology includes a large brain tumor tissue bank and several research projects relevant to Jess’s treatment. The Brain Tumor Tissue Bank was established in 2014, but already has over 1500 samples and is quickly being recognized as the largest in the nation.
