Race Against The Odds

Nathan Abplanalp - Charlotte Photographer (24)

The first First Annual Charlotte RACE Against the Odds 5K to benefit the Cure Starts Now Foundation was held last Saturday In Weddington, NC. The race is an annual event in honor of Grace McGrath to help raise awareness and support for research and a possible cure for DIPG, which is a rare inoperable brain tumor. I was astounded at the number of people who came out in support of the cause. There were over 700 participants and they raised over 51,000 dollars, which was over three times their goal! I was connected with the McGraths through my wife Rachel. Over the last few months she has worked very closely with them on their website and marketing. More information on DPIG and Grace can be found at Soar with Grace.
