As a tribute to Tim Beach, our spouse and father, we are honoring the man we all loved with an annual fundraising event for brain tumor research. Our 2nd Annual Hope…It’s a Beach Thing Event, in memory of Tim Beach, will be held Saturday, September 14, 2013. The 5K Run/Walk will start at 10:00 AM on the University of Dayton campus – rain or shine!
NEW THIS YEAR – Blue Jean Beach Ball – In addition to the 5K walk/run held in the morning, we have added an evening event, a Blue Jean Beach Ball held that same evening, September 14, 2013. No need for a black tie or formal gown- dress up your blue jeans, put on your sundresses and relax! You will have the opportunity to taste fine wines from all over the world, enjoy live music, bid on silent auction items, and have your caricature drawn! (See 2013 Event page for more details)
Our goal is to build on this event each year and with your prayers and support, we HOPE to find a cure for brain tumors and the disease Tim fought over 21 months and so many more are still fighting. Please join us in our efforts to support brain tumor research to help prevent others from going through what our family has endured. 100% of proceeds from this event will go directly to Dana Farber Cancer Institute to support Dr. David Reardon and his team’s brain tumor Research Efforts.
Help Us Find A Cure for Brain Cancer…
“This research is very close to our hearts and we have witnessed Dr. Reardon’s (Tim’s neuro-oncologist) passion toward it as well. For those of you who are unaware, Tim passed away from a Glioblastoma Multi Form brain tumor at barely 53 years of age, in April 2012. After his initial surgery he was given 3-6 months to live, possibly a year with treatment. Through clinical trials and our knowledgeable physicians, we were blessed to have him for 21 months.
We HOPE that through research, others will survive this horrible disease and their families and friends will not have to suffer the loss of a husband, wife, father, mother, brother, sister, or friend. We personally know so many others affected by this disease and we HOPE that you will join us in this effort to help find a cure for brain cancer.”
