About This Activity

Please join us on August 9, 2014 for the first annual DIPG - Ride for the Cure in honor of Heather Serafin.

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a type of brain tumor.  DIPG primarily affects children, with most diagnoses occurring between 5 and 11 years of age. Unlike many other pediatric cancers, there has been little progress in improving treatments and cure rates for DIPG over the last few decades. Unfortunately, fewer than 10% of children with DIPG survive two years from diagnosis

There will be a 15 mile bike ride for adults and a 1 mile ride for kids. All proceeds go towards research for DIPG through The Cure Starts Now Foundation.

The event will take place at:

Redar Park
1754 S. Park Ave
Schererville, IN 46375
