About this Event
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! Please help us raise awareness and funding! We are raising money specifically for Boston Children's Hospital. Proceeds will be going toward DIPG Brain Tumor Research.

What is DIPG? Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a brain tumor found in a part of the brain stem called the pons. The pons controls essential bodily functions such as heartbeat, breathing, swallowing, eye movement, eyesight, and balance. DIPG affects children almost exclusively. Approximately 200-400 children in the United States are diagnosed with DIPG each year. These children are typically between the ages of 4 and 11. DIPG accounts for roughly 10-15% of all brain tumors in children. Only 10% of children with DIPG survive for 2 years following their diagnosis, and LESS THAN 1% survive for 5 years. The MEDIAN survival time is 9 months from diagnosis.
This event is being hosted by Fitness Together in Lexington, MA in efforts to raise money and awareness for the battle against childhood cancer. Thank you for joining us in support of this amazing hospital and their research!
