01 Jun Kortney’s Challenge
While the pandemic is stopping us from physically getting together this year, it won’t stop us from virtually striding to cure pediatric brain tumors during the 15th annual Kortney’s Challenge 2 Mile FUN Run/Walk. We’ll certainly miss seeing everyone’s smiling faces this year, especially after the amazing success of last year’s event, but we must continue Kortney’s Challenge spirit because these kids rely on our help. We know how wonderful our caring community is and know you will continue to support.
No matter where you live, you can participate in memory of Kortney and other children who have succumbed to brain tumors, and in honor of those fighting and yet to be diagnosed. COVID-19 won’t stop kids from being diagnosed, treated for and dying from brain tumors, and #WeWontStop supporting lifesaving research to help them. Together, but apart, we take the needed steps to Help Get Brain Tumors Off Kids’ Minds. The Virtual Kortney’s Challenge 2 Mile FUN Run/Walk is your chance to get moving and connect with others across the country as we stride together to help create a world where brain tumors don’t define a child’s life.
Kortney’s Challenge usually held on the “first Sunday of August,” will take place the “first WEEKEND in August.”
Last year, all of you, along with our generous sponsors helped us raise $100,000 and we can’t thank you enough. We understand and know financial situations may have changed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and that is why we decided to lower the event registration fee to $10 per person with the option to make an additional donation if you are able. But we still need your help. Since the event is virtual, we are asking you to invite your friends, family, co-workers, and anyone you may know to participate. If you ask at least 10 people and they register for the event, that is $110 raised towards funding children’s brain tumor research. Just imagine the impact we could all have if the over 600 participants from last year’s event register and then they get 10 people each to register. That is $60,000!!!! We are depending on you to help us! We can’t stop funding research now. Not ever.
All you need to do is run/walk 2 miles. Run, walk, dance, cartwheel….whatever you do to have fun while moving 2 miles.
