National Brain Tumor Walk & Race for Hope DC

Team Sparky

Team Sparky is excited to join forces with the National Brain Tumor Society by participating in the first ever National Brain Tumor Walk and Race for Hope-DC in honor of Brain Tumor Awareness. We established Team Sparky in memory of my brother, Mark Claeys, who died from a brain tumor in 2002. The team name comes from the nickname that we had for Mark when he was little, but also stands for his energy and love of life.

I hope that you will join or support our team in order to remember Mark, and raise money and awareness to fight this horrible disease.
