HOPE...It's a Beach Thing 5k Run/Walk|2024

TBD Fall 2024
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. The event will be held on September 24, 2022, with registration starting at 9:00 a.m.

Early Registration is $25 with online registration ending at noon on Thursday, September 22, 2022. 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.

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 nine years, the HOPE...It's a Beach Thing events have raised $544,000 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.
