About Maddie's Mark

Madeline Musto, age five, an independent, kind and mature kindergartener was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumor - known in the medical world as DIPG. On February 8, 2012, five days after her diagnosis, Madeline entered heaven so peacefully surrounded by her family and sisters. The Maddie's Mark Foundation was developed to provide Best Day Ever's to seriously and terminally ill children in the local area. All profit from this race goes directly to the Maddie's Mark Foundation.
