Center Supports Run of Hope Seattle

Center Supports Run of Hope Seattle

On Sunday September 27th staff and physicians from the SCCA Proton Therapy Center joined patients, survivors, and supporters at the annual Run of Hope Seattle 5K. This was a wonderful event that brought together the community while raising funds and awareness for pediatric brain tumor research at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

SCCA Proton Therapy Center team members joined efforts to raise funds for the Run of Hope and thanks to everyone’s hard work the race was able to exceed its fundraising goal of $350,000. Our Center is passionate about supporting the community in the fight against pediatric brain tumors. In addition to participating in events, the Center also partners directly with Seattle Children’s Hospital to treat children that are candidates for proton therapy. Since Run of Hope Seattle began seven years ago, the race has raised more than $2,000,000 to fund pediatric brain tumor research.

According to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, each year 3,500 children—11.5 each day—are diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor in the U.S. and 72 percent of those children are younger than 15. Brain tumors are the deadliest form of childhood cancer. Some tumors have survival rates of less than 20 percent. Pediatric brain tumors are different than adult tumors and they require specific research and different treatments. The pediatric brain tumor research done at Seattle Children’s Hospital is crucial to saving children’s lives and improving survivors’ quality of life.
