As we enter the season of new growth in nature, we’re also celebrating the growth of our foundation. We’re halfway through April, and busy is the word of the month here at the Cristian Rivera Foundation! As the warm weather approaches, so does our first ever Cristian Rivera Foundation 5K Walk and Run.
The 1st Annual Cristian Rivera Foundation 5K Walk and Run will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, 15 minutes from Manhattan and the George Washington Bridge. The registration process will begin at 8:30 AM and the Run/Walk will commence at 9:00 AM. This event will raise money to 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. Take a stand against DIPG with us by sponsoring, participating, volunteering and donating in the 1st Annual CRF “Full Steam Ahead” 5K. You can help us continue our progress and give hope to more children and families affected by DIPG. Take a stand against DIPG with us by getting involved the 1st Annual CRF “Full Steam Ahead” 5K.
