Description

The 8th Annual Ben's Run in memory of Ben Goldfogle will be held on April 14, 2018.  The race will raise money to benefit the oncology and bone marrow units at Children’s National in Washington, D.C.  In seven years, Ben's Run has donated over $530,000 to Children's National to help fund ground-breaking clinical research into the treatment of children like Ben, whose leukemia returns even after a stem cell transplant.  Join us in the fight against childhood cancer!

Help Us Raise Money for Children's National!

If you'd like to help Ben's Run raise even more money to support the critical research being done at Children's National into new treatments for childhood leukemia , please consider becoming a Ben's Run fundraiser! It's easy to create an individual or team page during registration that you can send to friends and family to have them sponsor you to raise money for Ben's Run.  Last year, our runners raised $15,000 for Ben's Run through online fundraising - this year we'd like to raise even more!  Every dollar raised goes directly to Children's National to support the ground-breaking research being done by Dr. Kristen Williams and her team.  To read more about what Dr. Williams is doing, read our Impact Report.
