Race for Hope Philadelphia

Allison's NumbSkulls

I was diagnosed 10 years ago with an aggressive and malignant brain cancer. I don't know why I'm still here, but I am so grateful. While I have enjoyed good health, too many other people have passed away. I'm working hard at staying well and fighting for a cure.

The Defeat GBM Initiative, spearheaded by the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS), is making ground-breaking progress toward finding a cure. Research collaboration by world-renowned medical teams with proven track records in cancer research will eventually improve patient survival. The goal is to double average survival, which is currently only 14 months.

Over the past 10 years my team, Allison’s NumbSkulls, has raised over $300,000 to support the Race For HOPE. This year I hope to raise $25,000 for the National Brain Tumor Society. Your donation of any amount toward my goal is appreciated. Also, you can join our team, Allison’s NumbSkulls, and fundraise from your family, friends and colleagues for this worthy cause. Please walk or run the 5K with us and 7,000 people at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia on October 12th.

If you'd like to sponsor me, please send me a check made payable to NBTS or donate online at All donations are tax deductible, and your generosity will play a role in finding a cure for this dreadful disease.

Thank you so much for your support. I will think of you proudly as I cross the finish line on Saturday, October 12. I hope to see you there!
