Race for Hope Philadelphia

Penn Pioneers

Penn Medicine is thrilled to be participating in the National Brain Tumor Society's Race for Hope PA event!  We look forward to this day every year, and are very pleased this year's event is back in-person at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia.  We look forward to physically being together again and joining forces with NBTS to fight against brain cancer and strengthen the voice of the brain tumor community.  

Please consider supporting our efforts by either registering to join our team or making a donation.  Proceeds from the Race for Hope Philadelphia go directly to support research and advocacy efforts to improve the lives of brain tumor patients, survivors and their families.  We would love to have you on our Penn Pioneers team!
