We are proud sponsors of Ben’s Run for the 8th year in a row since the start (April 2011) and we will continue to support the run to the finish line. Ben’s Run to Ben-a-fit Children’s National has raised $531,000 to fund ground-breaking research in the treatment of life threatening childhood illnesses. Ben was 11 years old when he passed away from an infection while battling leukemia. His family, friends, and community keep his spirit alive by raising awareness in a yearly 5K race in April at Stonegate Elementary School in Silver Spring, MD. Want to help continue the race to defeat childhood illnesses? You can kindly make a donation to Ben’s Run.
