RUN WITH WOLFES ANNUAL RUN & WALK
Sunday September 18, 2016
The wolf represents strength and embodiment of a wild spirit surviving on its own. They are known for their endurance and are a symbol of stamina and strength. The wolf enjoys freedom and individualism, but it is also gregarious and enjoys the company of others having a strong sense of family.
Much like the wolf, Run with Wolfes is a symbol of strength for all those fighting brain cancer and their families. Run with Wolfes is a pack made from ties of affection and mutual aid to those that need it.
In 2014, it is estimated that approximately 23,300 new cases of brain tumors will be diagnosed. Of that figure approximately 4,300 are expected to be diagnosed in children under the age of 20 years old. Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children under the age of 20 and in males from ages 20 to 39, after leukemia. Brain tumors kill more people under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Brain tumor research is vastly underfunded by private and public support when compared to breast, prostate or lung cancer.
Run With Wolfes is a fun and inspiring way to join forces in the fight against brain cancer by raising funds for research. Your support gives brain cancer patients and their families the hope of being another step closer to advancing research, determining a successful method of early detection and discovering a cure.
