The Friends4Michael Running Team
For the 17th year in a row, the Friends4Michael Running Team will participate strongly in this run, which we call Michael's Run. We do that because Michael not only was very interested in participating in this race, but also because he and his team has been such a huge part of it. Michael wanted to raise money after he was diagnosed and together we chose this race to participate in and make that donation. That first year, he raised $15,000. We will donate as a team another $15,000 this year. We have donated over $300,000 since we have been participating.
Michael's Foundation, the Friends4Michael Foundation provides financial assistance and emotional support to families across the country whose child has a brain tumor. We can turn requests for funding around in 2-3 days, better than any other brain tumor support organization. If you care to donate, please go to www.Friends4Michael.org or donate on this site. We partner with the National Brain Tumor Society and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure because they have been such great supporters of Michael and our family. They are making a difference for brain tumor patients and families and we are proud to be supporters.
Please join our team as a runner, walker, volunteer or donor. We have had over 100 team members for 14 of the last 16 years - and three years ago we set a record with 203 teammates! Once again, following the run/walk, we will have a party just for the Friends4Michael Running Team near the race site, which is just a great time! Make a difference and be part of a great event and a great team. See you there!
