Lace up your running shoes, grab your crew and join the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation on September 30 for the inaugural Starry Night Triangle 5K at Dorothea Dix Park, Harvey Hill. The 308-acre destination park boasts open fields, rolling hills and stunning views of the city skyline – all in the heart of downtown Raleigh.
Starry Night Triangle also offers a children’s 50-yard dash, bouncy house, vendors and raffles, with prizes such as a 50-person BBQ catered by Ole Time Barbecue. Emceeing this afternoon walk/run will be Ron the Ref, previously of the Carolina Hurricanes.
With something for everyone, we encourage participants to bring families, friends and co-workers. Start a team for a fun way to come together and fundraise for the PBTF’s Stars – children and teens fighting brain tumors, the deadliest form of child-hood cancer. Starry Night events help fund lifesaving research and support programs for Stars and their families.
There is no registration fee for the event, but participants who raise at least $100 receive an event t-shirt, free food provided by Jersey Mike’s and a lantern to light during the moving ceremony honoring our Stars and remembering the children no longer with us.
Registration is 4-5 p.m. with the 5K beginning at 5:30 p.m. Later as the sun sets, join other supporters, Stars and family members as they light up the nighttime sky with lanterns to honor these children.
Have fun while helping the PBTF achieve its vision of a world without childhood brain tumors. Sign up today for the Starry Night Triangle 5K at mystar-rynight.org/nctriangle.
