UPDATED INFORMATION RE: Cheering for Caitlin 5K

We have watched closely the ever changing guidelines, orders and directives handed down by government officials.  After long discussions, and input from trusted friends and professionals, we have made some decisions about the Cheering for Caitlin 5K and Festival this year.

We are unable to hold a local event as we were hopeful we would be able to. Instead, we will hold the Cheering for Caitlin 5K in a virtual format only this year. The date has been moved and will be anytime you find it convenient to virtually walk or run your 5K between June 28th and July 4th. You are going to want one of these shirts this year, we've got something fun and new for you!

We have two options for you to be a part of our fun this year. Participants may choose to participate in the 5K with us and not register or pay anything. You can wear a shirt from a previous year, upload your pictures to us and let us see your smiles. A second option for those who would like a new shirt this year, is to register to participate and pay the registration fee. We will get your shirts to you (local delivery by us, or mailed if you are further away.If you live locally, please choose the regular in person option, if you live outside Central Florida, please choose the virtual option and we will mail your shirts.)

We invite everyone to join us in 2 contests this year. 

First, our costume contest. Dress up, in your best rainbow attire. Send us your pictures and we will determine who gets bragging rights for best rainbow themed costumes this year!

Second, grab your chalk and head out to your driveway and sidewalk. Chalk it up, send us those pictures and we will pick our favorite 3 and post you and your fabulous creations on our social media sites.

(When posting anything to social media, please use the hashtag #cheeringforcaitlin2020)

If you want to register and receive a shirt, our deadline is June 5th. 

From our family to yours, we wish you nothing but health, and send good wishes and positive energy as we all make our way through a new normal.

PLEASE run, walk and have FUN!  Gather a team of friends, family and coworkers to run or walk, spread smiles and good cheer...and be an ambassador of hope! 100% of the proceeds from this event will support the Children’s Brain Tumor Family Foundation.

Proceeds from the Cheering for Caitlin 5K will benefit the Children's Brain Tumor Family Foundation (CBTFF), an all volunteer based 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funding research for rare and inoperable pediatric brain tumors. Brain tumors have the highest death rate of all childhood cancers, but they have one of the lowest levels of research funding. The CBTFF was founded in 2015 by four families, united by tragedy and heartbroken from the experience of having to watch their children and loved ones battle the devastating diagnosis of an inoperable pediatric brain tumor. The organization is designed to help grieving and frustrated communities convert their passion and anger into awareness, support, and donations for research that is critically underfunded and highly dependent upon financial contributions from the private sector. The funds raised by the CBTFF support the Children’s Brain Tumor Project at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center.
