“How do you repay someone for saving your life?”

It’s a pretty hard question when you really think about it. It is a question that I live with every day, and because of this event I am one step closer to getting my answer. In July of 2009, Dr. Pokrupa of KHSC removed a meningioma brain tumor saving my life. I am one among thousands, that the neurosurgery team saves on a yearly basis - yet rarely do we say, “thank you”. The Chase a Dream – Neuro race weekend is designed for all participants to complete 1 of 4 distances to show their appreciation and support to the group of surgeons who have impacted our lives. In 2016, the first Neuro race weekend donated $26,533.12 to the neurosurgery department which will help fund research needed to save lives in our future. This year we are offering a 2K, 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon, plus a pasta dinner the night before. Come out and join us, you don't have to be an elite runner to participate. Showing your support is where it all starts...

Together we can make a difference. 

Stronger. Together.
