Welcome to Team #Hope4Hadley!
Thank you for checking out Race for Hope in honor of Hadley Anne Ludwig!
Hadley is a walking miracle and proof that God exists. Statistically she shouldn't be here as she was diagnosed with Posterior Fossa A anaplasic ependymoma on October 29, 2019. She's not only HERE, but she is THRIVING! She starts Kindergarten this August and she is ready to learn! Kids like Hadley deserve to grow up to be adults. Pediatric brain tumors are the number one cancer killing our children yet most people turn a blind eye. It's why I decided this year to focus on raising money strictly for ependymoma and brain tumors instead of our local Children's Hospital. While we are forever grateful to them and their brilliant neurosurgery team, money for brain tumors is underfunded and last year CHOP raised over 2 MILLION dollars, while the National Brain Tumor Society's "goal" for Philadelphia Race for Hope this year is just $680,000. Please join me in helping the NBTS surpass their goal, every dollar will help. Consider donating $1 or maybe $5 to help end this ugly beast of brain cancer.
I am uniting with others to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. I am passionate about this cause, so I’m taking action. I need your help in this fight. Our goal is to raise at least $7500 towards ependymoma research. National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists - but more needs to be done. Please join in my effort!
