Copyright 2021 Evan's Crew - Towards a cure.
Our hope is that each year will bring new insight into this pediatric brain tumor and soon there will be a REAL option in treatment for other families.
When you need to do something to make sense of it all.... you ride a bike.
Why we do this
In August 2011, our family was camping in NH during one of our most memorable and enjoyable vacations. I recall that I found myself thinking - this is a really special time.
Things changed dramatically. Three months after that vacation we learned Evan was very sick. Not just sick, we found out there was not a thing that could be done for him medically to change the prognosis.
So now we ride 163 miles in the Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for DIPG research at Dana-Farber in Evan's name. We NEEDED to do something to make sense of it all, to find a way to change the outcome for future children. We have been riding since 2013 as Team Evan's Crew.
Evan's Crew: Towards a cure for DIPG
You helped us reach a tremendous milestone of fundraising - together raising over $1,000,000 in just 8 years!
This year, the Pan-Mass Challenge raised $50,000,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Each and every one of you played a part in helping fulfill this goal. Check out their yearbook.
We would not have met this goal without your support of our mission to support DIPG Research!!
