My name is Jimmy Alverson and I am a junior at George Mason High School in Falls Church, Virginia. I was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor in 2015. After undergoing surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, I was in remission for almost three years when the brain cancer returned in January 2019. I then underwent surgery and completed chemotherapy and immunotherapy treatment. Since forming as a Race for Hope team in 2015, Team Jimmy has raised over $41,000 thanks to its supporters and participants. All funds raised have been used and will continue to be used for research to find cures for brain cancer. Our goal is to pass the $50,000 mark this year. My family and I are grateful for your support, regardless of whether you donate a monetary pledge to Race for Hope for brain tumor research, run or walk with us on race day, or simply give us your moral support and well wishes. Thank you!
