BRIEF DESCRIPTION The 11th Annual Race For Grace 5K & 1 Mile Walk benefits the Reflections Of Grace Foundation.

Grace’s cancer was a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a tumor of the brainstem for which there is no known cure and there have been no advances in treatment options for more than 35 years.
