Description
In person and two virtual options available in 2022! You choose the best one for you and your family. See our Covid precautions here.
Gabriella’s Smile Foundation is hosting their Fifth Annual 5k Cupcake Run presented by Community First Health Plans on May 14, 2022. This is a family friendly event for everyone and kids ages 0-14 can register as official participants. 
May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month and we are raising critical funds to provide support for DIPG and pediatric cancer families. 
MORE THAN JUST A RACE 
Our 5K Cupcake Run is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. Each year we encourage participants to fundraise $100 for Gabriella's Smile Foundation. This allows us to provide financial assistance as well as free support for pediatric cancer families facing the stress and impact of a cancer diagnosis. A portion of the funds raised will go towards pediatric brain cancer research. 
A fundraiser page will automatically be created when you register. Fundraising is not required in order to participate, but it is greatly appreciated. You can choose to customize the page during registration or after via the link in the confirmation email, or just use it as is. 
Please consider sharing your fundraising page with family, friends and your community. You would be surprised how much a simple email or social media post encourages folks to donate to a cause you are passionate about. For brainstorming, fundraising tips or general questions, please contact isabel@strongerthandipg.org
 
ABOUT THE RACE
Gabriella’s 5k Cupcake Run and Gabriella’s Smile Foundation is named after Gabriella Elise Torres, who was 5 when she battled Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a terminal form of brain cancer. She died just 8 days after her 6th birthday on November 7, 2015.
Gabriella’s 5k Cupcake Run is the first of its kind here in the San Antonio community for Brain Tumor Awareness Month, which is in May. It’s the first 5k dedicated exclusively to raising awareness for DIPG and pediatric brain cancer in our community.
