The money raised through Rachael's Ribbons of Hope Foundation goes to raise awareness and research of pediatric brain tumors. The statistics are staggering: -Tumors in the brain and spinal cord are the 2nd most common cancer in children. -There are over 130 different types of brain tumors, making effective treatment very complicated. -Only 2 new treatments for brain tumors have been approved in the past 25 years. -Today, 3 families across America will mourn the loss of their child to a brain or spinal cord tumor. Your contributions will help with treatments, awareness and quality of life issues for children with brain tumors and their families.
This is not your ordinary run; the Brain Booster 5K is so much more! Set at the USAF Academy Field House with beautiful views of the Air Force Academy and overlooking Colorado Springs. This is a challenging but fun course professionally timed by Colorado Running Company. If you’re not a runner or walker you can come out to cheer on the runners and enjoy the festivities that include prizes (for paid registrants), vendors, food, music and more. The Brain Booster 5k is a family event and friendly dogs are welcome too!
There will be plenty of parking in the Field House parking area.
1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for men and women in each age category 18 years of age and younger 19 to 28 years of age 29 to 49 years of age 50 years of age and beyond
Plan to stay after the run when we give out the awards, have a drawing for prizes, food and visit our vendors. We will have a DJ and BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs.

Again this year we are offering the “Remote Runner” category. With this category you sign up as a runner but don’t have to be here to participate. If you preregister you will receive your bag and t-shirt in time for the run. Then you run or walk in support of the Brain Booster 5K and Rachael’s Ribbons of Hope from where you are. We will have a board at the event showing our Remote Runner’s names, city and state where they are at. If you register after the preregistration cut off we will get your bag and shirt out to you as soon as possible but you will still be listed as a Remote Runner on the day of the event.
Online registration is closed, please register at the event.
