Why We Run

On Saturday, June 9, hundreds of supporters will run through Van Cortlandt Park to participate in the 1st Annual Cristian Rivera Foundation 5K, a fundraising event that will help increase public awareness of DIPG, as well as raise funds that will provide financial support to families and medical facilities that conduct innovative research and clinical trials.  Your reason for running (or walking!) could inspire others to sign up and support the cause. By hopping on board, together we can help the 200-300 children diagnosed each year. Let’s make 2018 the year we say goodbye to DIPG! “Full Steam Ahead”
