Virtual Beat Brain cancer 5k Run & 1 Mile Walk
As this was our 5th year of the event, we chose two recipients! Allivea Maxon, a 6-year-old girl from Hilton, NY that had been fighting Pilocytic Astrocytoma since she was 8 months old; unfortunately Allivea lost her battle on February 11th, 2020. Craig Winter, a 9-year-old boy from Pittsford, NY that has been fighting Neuronal Glioma since he was 2 years old. Please see both Allivea and Craig's full stories on the 2020 recipient pages. There are three lines at the top left of the logo, that is the menu, click for the drop down. Unfortunately we had to go to a virtual event due to the crowd restrictions due to Covid-19. Thank you to all who participated and donated, we raised $17,000! Each family received $8,500, which is amazing for a virtual event due to covid-19.
This 5k run & 1 mile walk was created in memory of Desiree Stockholm, a nurse practitioner who passed away from a rare form of brain cancer at only 31 years old.
As a nurse practitioner, Desiree lived her life to help others. She would have loved to give back and help others in her same situation. Our family is helping her do just that! Please help us honor this beautiful woman and raise money for local families in need. Brain cancer is a horrible disease and treatment is incredibly costly. By raising this money, we can help off-set the cost and help alleviate just a small amount of stress on the person and their family.
