Starry Night Knoxville

Sun November 22, 2020
Description

This Starry Night Knoxville’s 5th annual race to cure the kids!  We have 3 virtual choices: 8.5k, 5k, or 1 mile walk/ run! Join us in raising money and awareness for pediatric brain tumor patients by supporting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and our local East Tennessee Children's Hospital. We need funding for research for safer, more effective treatments.

Every day, 13 children are diagnosed with a brain tumor in the U.S.. Our son, Brody, was one of those. He was diagnosed at age 8 with a juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma. We have been so blessed with the outcome of his two brain surgeries at East Tennessee Children's Hospital in 2015 and 2018. Many families, however, have not been so fortunate fighting the deadliest form of all childhood cancers. We want to improve treatments through funding research in targeted therapies for children whom other traditional treatments have failed. Join us on social media are we celebrate our local warriors on 11/22. Grab your family or a friend and join one of our teams. Together, we are making a difference and have donated over $85,000 to date.

Register by 11/12 to be guaranteed a shirt size. Pick-up is on 11/21 from 3-6:00 at Albright Brewery on Sutherland Ave. 

A huge thank you to our presenting sponsors, Weigel's and Herron-Connell Insurance. Together, we are funding research, building community, and creating hope. 100% of your registration cost is donated thanks to our sponsors!
