Join us and take a stand against DIPG.
The Cristian Rivera Foundation has donated more than $1.4 million to doctors and families of DIPG patients. Our foundation takes pride in the work we do, but in order to continue this amazing work we need your help.
Signing up to participate is just the first step!
We encourage all CRF 5K participants to make a difference by fundraising.You can participate as an individual or get friends, family members, and colleagues together to form a team. 100% of the donations you raise in support of your participation will go to medical facilities that conduct innovative research and clinical trials, increasing public awareness of DIPG, and providing financial support to families.
The Cristian Rivera Foundation funds the work of Dr. Mark Souweidane, Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery of Weill Cornell Medical Center – Memorial Sloane (Kettering) Cancer Center and Dr. Oren Becher of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital and the Lurie Cancer Center at Northwestern.
COVID-19 will not stop our goals of helping DIPG children and families.
In fact, this pandemic has shown that DIPG children need our help more than ever. We will be holding an entirely outdoors 5K event with all precautions taken to ensure the health and safety of all participants.
We thank you for your continued support and believe that with your help we can eradicate the world of DIPG.
