Welcome to the "Chris Connelly Crushes Cancer" Team led by Whitney and Shawn Connelly! This sub-team represents support from our family and friends, and colleagues! We appreciate your support!
As many of you may know, Shawn's identical twin brother, Chris, was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive brain cancer in Fall 2016, just weeks before the birth of his and wife Kristen's son, Jack. Since then, they have fought brain cancer as a family, with ultimate strength, grace, and perseverance. Today, Chris continues his fight against brain cancer.
So, how can we help? On Sunday, May 5, 2019, we invite friends, family, and colleagues to join us in participating in the Race for Hope, a 5K in downtown Washington, D.C. By channeling our energy into this effort, we can help the National Brain Tumor Society to fund the type of research needed to further research and treatment for anaplastic ependymoma, the rare type of brain cancer that Chris was diagnosed with in 2016.
So many of us want to support the Kristen, Chris, and Jack as Chris continues to fight back against brain cancer. No amount of support is too small, no time spent is too little - any amount of support is appreciated towards a CURE, better TREATMENTS, and one less brain cancer diagnosis.
On behalf of myself and our entire family, we thank you for your love and support!!!
-Whitney, Shawn (and William) Connelly
If you are local to the DC area, please join us for a great day to celebrate survivors, memorialize those who fought, and support family and friends as we strive to find a CURE. Please register as a team member if you want to participate as a walker or a runner with the Connelly team. All are welcome!
THANK YOU TO ALL PARTICIPANTS and SPONSORS OF FUNDRAISING EVENTS!
