BT5K 2017: Chicago 04/23/2017

2017 BT5K Chicago

GPJs Girls

For my Bat Mitzvah Project, I have chosen to raise money for the American Brain Tumor Association. 

My Grandpa Jeff  (GPJ) was diagnosed with a brain tumor, glioblastoma, in 2015. He fought bravely and lost his battle this past October. Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. To honor my Grandpa Jeff's memory , my family and I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association's BT5K Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk. Money raised by the BT5K will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.  Talia and I promised our Grandpa we would help find a cure!


The more the merrier! Please join us for some fun! I’m inviting all my friends to join my team in support of the nearly 700,000 people currently living with a brain tumor. You can join my team by clicking the join button on the right.

If you can’t make it to the BT5K Chicago on April 23, 2017, please consider making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association in support of my team’s efforts. Click the donate button on the right.

Thank you in advance for your support of our efforts on behalf of brain tumor patients, their families, and the researchers pursuing the breakthroughs.
