The Defeat DIPG Superhero Sprint & 6K is a family-friendly and fun event that raises money for childhood brain cancer research through the Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. This event features a 6K timed race, sanctioned by USATF, as well as kid-friendly shorter "sprints." All are welcome, and dressing like a superhero is encouraged! We will honor the many young superheroes who have battled or are battling childhood cancer as a part of this event.
DIPG has the unfortunate distinction of being the most deadly childhood cancer that impacts hundreds of children each year in the U.S. alone. Doctors are finally optimistic that they will find effective treatments and a cure for DIPG brain tumors. We must fund this essential research to give these kids hope.
