HOPE...It's a Beach Thing 5k Run/Walk|2021

University of Dayton
Dayton, Ohio

HOPE…It's a Beach Thing is an annual 5K Walk/Run supporting brain tumor research, typically held at the University of Dayton, OH campus. We are hopeful that 2021 will allow for our event to resume in person. Time will tell and we will keep you informed!

The funds raised through this event will directly benefit Dr. David Reardon's research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This research is very close to our hearts and we have witnessed Dr. Reardon's passion toward it as well.

Tim passed away from a glioblastoma multi-form brain tumor at just 53 years of age, in April of 2012. After his initial surgery he was given 3-6 months to live, possibly a year with treatment. Through clinical trials and our knowledgeable physicians, we were blessed to have him for 21 months.

Over the last eight years, the HOPE...It's a Beach Thing events have raised $437,000 for brain tumor research led by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Dr. David Reardon.

We HOPE that through research, others will survive this horrible disease and their families and friends will not have to suffer the loss of a husband, wife, father, mother, brother, sister, or friend. We personally know so many others affected by this disease and we HOPE that you will join us in this effort to help find a cure for brain cancer.

Registration will open at 9:00 a.m. in Humanities Plaza and the race will start at 10:00 a.m. in front of the Rec Plex on the campus of the University of Dayton. Parking will be available in Lot C by Kettering Laboratory.
