Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Our goal is to build on this event each year. With your prayers and support, we HOPE to find a cure for brain tumors and the disease Tim fought over 21 months that so many more are still fighting. 


Please join us in our efforts to support brain tumor research to help prevent others from going through what our family has endured. 

100% of proceeds from this event will go directly to Dana Farber Cancer Institute to support Dr. David Reardon and his team's brain tumor research efforts.



Tim was full of hope, with strong faith. After surgery, he received a message from God that inspired him through his illness, and continues to inspire us today. Read more about Tim's story here

We hold the annual 5K because Tim loved to run and he also loved the University of Dayton campus. 

But it's about more people than just Tim...we've met so many courageous people in our journey- so many incredible stories and inspiring spirits. Join us this year and help us keep this hope alive.
