During National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month each year, we host a 5k in Kansas City to honor Natalie and all past, present and future fighters of Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) and other childhood cancers. Our goal is to raise awareness, fund research and improve the treatment experience for affected families. Every runner makes a difference.
So, what are you waiting for? Get on your feet, set your own pace and start making a difference in the childhood cancer community.
