FRAMINGHAM – Last year, more than 1,000 individuals participated in Devin’s Dash to support Framingham’s Devin Suau and his battle against DIPG, a pediatric cancer, that has no cure.
The event sold out and raised more than $50,000, but Sadly Devin died just days before his 7th birthday a month later.
This year, the race will be called Super D’s Run to End DIPG. Money will benefit the WhyNotDevin Foundation to end DIPG.
Super D’s Run will be held on Sunday, October 21 at 9 a.m. at Walsh Middle School.
This year, we are honoring Devin by asking people to dress in costume, said one of the race organizers Wendy Habeski.
“Halloween was his favorite holiday,” said Christine Suau.
“Please join us in a day that Devin would have loved. A Halloween run to help other kids with the same disease he had, DIPG. All proceeds to benefit families battling DIPG,” added Suau.
“We are excited to broaden our scope and help more families that are fighting this horrible disease,” said Habeski.
Super D’s Run to End DIPG 5K is a fundraising event to help financially support children with DIPG and their families.
The race was established in memory of Devin Suau who was diagnosed in January 2017 at just 6 years old. Devin lost his courageous battle after just 8 months.
“We are moving forward in Devin’s memory to support other families going through the same difficult journey to fight for their child’s life. Proceeds from the run will benefit the WhyNotDevin Foundation to End DIPG,”said the Committee.
