Organizers of the 4th Annual Walk for Health Walk-a-Thon PONTE-EN-FORMA have chosen the Cristian Rivera Foundation to benefit from the event. All of the proceeds raised will go to us so that we can then give more money to Dr. Mark Souweidane to fund his research trials. I am looking forward to having everyone come out to support the foundation and DIPG research in general. It’s such an important cause that often gets overlooked. An event like this will do so much to help us reach a cure. We are offering a variety of participation packages on the website, www.cristianriverafoundation.org/events.html, some of which include foundation wristbands, t-shirts and even gift certificates from Havana Café and the Hudson River Café. The walk is on Sunday, April 17 from 10am until 2pm at Roberto Clemente State Park. I hope everyone will sign up, or at least make a donation. You don’t have to walk to donate, and you don’t have to finish the walk to make your donation count.
