May 7, Beat Brain Cancer 5K
This 5k was created in memory of Desiree Stockholm, a courageous 31-year old woman who fought a rare form of pediatric brain cancer for almost two years. In memory of Desiree, we have created this 5k to honor her legacy of caring for others. All money raised will go to the Golisano Children’s Hospital for a plaque to be placed on the 7th floor Oncology unit in memory of Desiree. Her family has committed to raise $35,000 for the nurse’s station to be named after her. Join us as we raise money for a great hospital and wonderful young woman!
