Ty can't run - Maybe you can? PART 2

Our next run to fund childhood brain tumor research is set for October 13th in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.  It is a 10K that we are doing along with Elizabeth's Hope ( in honor of Ty and Elizabeth Minter, a beautiful girl who lost her battle to rare pediatric brain tumors just months ago.  I have detailed instructions on how to join Ty's team and begin your fundraising efforts.  Please email us at and I will share those details with you. 

As always, there is no minimum fundraising requirement and we welcome everyone and anyone to join us.  The more the better!  We had such an impressive group at the 5K in July and we would love to have even more this time around! 

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month.  A perfect time to do something for the cause! 


I am so inspired by this video that was posted by another Cancer Mom yesterday.  This man's cause is Cystic Fibrosis, ours is childhood cancer, but regardless - the message is the same.  People who raise funds through athletic events aren't just helping the cause in a tremendous way, the cause is also helping them to push themselves to new extremes, to grow as people and to make a difference in the world.  I was moved to tears. 

In addition to the 10K in October, Ty will be honored at a St. Baldrick's head-shaving event in Rockaway Beach on September 15th.  We will all be there, and would love to see you there, too! 

Saturday, September 15th
1:30 PM (family friendly event)
$10 admission per person, $20 per family
The Bungalow Restaurant & Bar
377 Beach 92nd St, Rockaway Park 11693

The "Hope is in the (H)air" event was created by Mighty Mikey's family.  Mikey is an adorable little boy just like Ty, who has been fighting brain and spinal tumors for four years.  He is a courageous six year old who loves Sesame Street and he will be joining his sister in shaving/cutting his hair to raise money for the cause.  We hope to see you there!
