Nation’s Capitol RUN for a National Day for DIPG

19 September, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday Sept. 19 at 10am eastern standard time we will begin from the White House taking a circuitous route around the monuments and the National Mall, finishing at the White House.  The names of all the DIPG children will be read, represented by the ribbons on the angel wings of Jack’s Angels runner.  After spending time on the Hill this week, rallying for a National Day, this is our celebration of the real and true possibility of achieving that DAY.  This run is dedicated to all the brave children who have faced death by this moster–now numbering in many thousands–and to the children currently fighting.  It is run in hope that with more public awareness, and more effective decisions being made to fund pediatric cancer research, our angels may one day survive this affliction.  All are welcome to run this course with us–approximately 10k.
