Why We Participate

Life changes everyday, but who could imagine the life change that the Kaplan family encountered on February 1, 2006. That was the day that Steve underwent neurosurgery and was diagnosed with glioblastoma....just a word at that point, but what we soon learned was horrifying:

  • malignant brain tumor
  • treatable but not curable
  • statistics that we don’t even want to hear about

“Accept the diagnosis
Defy the prognosis”

That is the mantra that the Kaplan family immediately adopted!

Steve’s strength, determination and courage has been an inspiration to everyone! He has pulled that strength from the love and support that he continues to get from friends, family and colleagues. That love and support has brought us to tears.

Steve refuses to let you all down in the fight of his life. We can’t thank you enough for the love and caring that you have shared with us.

You have already talked the talk now we want you to walk the walk! Please join us and Share Hope as we walk to raise money for research that we hope will help find a cure for Steve!
