We can’t wait to see you at Starry Night Knoxville’s 5th annual race to cure the kids! These family-friendly races take off from Ijams and run along the Will Skelton greenway.  With a 1-mile fun run and chipped 5k, there is a race for everyone on a beautiful trail in nature! Join us in raising money and awareness for pediatric brain tumor patients by supporting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and local families battling brain tumors. 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 as we bring together children and families in East Tennessee with this race, fun run, and festival. The afternoon concludes with the lighting of lanterns at sunset honoring our warriors.

And, this year we will continue the party inside with School of Rock for a benefit concert starting at 5:30! So, plan on eating dinner with your family and having some local musicians and kids entertain you at Kids for a Cure!

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 sponsors!
