DC Race for Hope (May 6): Join The Drew Nealley Team!

Please join us for the DC Race for Hope on May 6th at Freedom Plaza to honor and remember our friend Drew Nealley. This year marks the Drew Nealley Team’s 12th year of participation in the DC Race for Hope. Our team’s namesake and guiding spirit was an energetic seven year-old who died far too young from a brain tumor in 2006. He loved attending Grace Episcopal Day School, where he developed strong bonds with classmates, teachers and administrators, many of whom continue to participate in the Race year after year. During the past 11 years, Drew Nealley teammates have run and walked over a thousand miles to raise $221,000 in support of brain tumor research.

Please join us to celebrate our 12th anniversary by signing up as a team member or making a generous donation toward our goal. Registration is available online through April 29th. Online registration is $20 for children 5 and under, $40 for walkers and untimed runners and $45 for timed participants. Please direct any questions to team captains Sarah Nealley at sarah.nealley@gmail.com, Karen Smith at kgpsmith@aol.com or Lauren Simpson at wlsimpson@msn.com. Thank you and we hope to see you May 6th.
