16th Annual Race for Hope - DC


The Case Foundation





Race on Sunday, May 5, 2013 features tributes to survivors;

raises millions for brain tumor research and advocacy 


(Washington, D.C.) – Certified Platinum recording artist and American Idol® winner David Cook is lacing up for a very personal cause on Sunday, May 5 as he joins walkers, runners, activists and survivors at the16th Annual Race for Hope – DC, presented by Cassidy Turley (

Cook is a vocal brain cancer awareness advocate. He has proactively raised cancer research funds and spoken publicly about his brother, Adam, who lost his valiant battle with brain cancer in 2009. This year, Cook returns to the Race for Hope – DC to remember his brother and send a message of hope and resilience to the families of nearly 700,000 people living with a primary brain tumor diagnosis in the United States.

"The Race for Hope is an amazing event of spirit and resolve for all involved in the fight against brain tumors. Our efforts honor the memories of those who have lost their battle with brain tumors, as well as survivors and family members who continue to fight the disease,” said David Cook, previous American Idol® winner and Honorary Chair of the Race for Hope. “I am beyond excited to serve as Honorary Chair again this year and thrilled to be part of the world’s largest brain tumor community event to raise awareness for brain tumor research and help find an eventual cure."

The 16th Annual Race for Hope – DC is one of the nation’s most inspirational and successful volunteer charity fundraising events. Last year’s race raised a record-breaking $2.6 million for brain tumor research, and the 2013 race participants and their 540 fundraising teams hope to meet or exceed that figure this year. Serving as honorary chair, Cook adds even more excitement to the annual event, which features akids’ Fun Run, the Wall of Hope, and tributes to brain tumor survivors. 

Beth Ann Telford, a Washington, D.C. area resident, will receive the Rabbi Joseph P. Weinberg Triumph of the Spirit Award at the 2013 event. Telford, a marathon runner, tri-athlete and Ironman competitor was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and today races to raise awareness and funding for cancer research. Her 2012 participation in the Race for Hope-DC raised $105,000.

Highlights of the 16th anniversary Race for Hope – DC include a Survivor Tribute featuring more than 350 brain tumor survivors who will march together towards the start line as a symbol of hope and strength in their battle against brain tumors.  The Race for Hope has grown to more than 12,000 participants in a culmination of a weekend of activities that also features a Golf for Hope tournament at Blue Mash Golf Course and many team-sponsored fundraising parties. These activities provide family and friends who have lost loved ones an opportunity to celebrate their lives and provide support for each other.

Since the Race for Hope-DC started in 1997, the event has raised more than $17.5 million for brain tumor research and supports those affected by the disease. Each year, Race for Hope – DC helps to bring hope and attention to the often, underserved brain tumor community. The need to increase research funding ismore urgent than ever – today, nearly 700,000 Americans are living with a primary brain tumor diagnosis, and within the next 12 months, more than 210,000 more will be diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor.

The Race for Hope – DC benefits Washington, D.C.-based Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and the National Brain Tumor Society. Both of these organizations share a goal - a day when there is acure, and when all patients with brain tumors are told they have a manageable disease.

The Race begins at Freedom Plaza at 13th and Pennsylvania Avenue (metro accessible) at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 5th, 2013.

Top sponsors include: Cassidy Turley, Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, Genentech, The Case Foundation, CoStar Group, Morgan Lewis, Clear Channel, Blue Mash Golf Course, First Potomac Realty Trust, Katten Muchin Rosenman, GEICO and Beacon Capital.

Online registration for the race concludes Monday, April 29, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. EST. To register as a participant or as a volunteer visit
