Join Strategic Risk Solutions To Support Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation

Strategic Risk Solutions (SRS) is a big supporter of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF), the largest national nonprofit focused on funding research to find a cure for this deadly disease and helping families that have children with brain tumors. srs

This fall, the PBTF is hosting its annual Starry Night events in eight cities around the United States, and SRS has agreed to be a national sponsor.

A team of SRS staff and local clients and friends took part in the Boston event on September 9, and the company will have teams participating in Dallas (September 30) and Atlanta (November 4). If you live near one of these cities, SRS would love to have you come out and join its team—you can walk with Brady Young, president and CEO, or run with the more energetic members of Team SRS. 

Mr. Young shared that he and SRS got involved after witnessing firsthand the challenges and stress that a colleague's family experienced in association with having a child with a brain tumor. As Mr. Young and SRS got more involved, they became familiar with some of the broader challenges other families face during and after treatment.

"When a family loses a child for any reason, it's traumatic, and most of us understand or at least have an appreciation of what that would be like," Mr. Young said. "Even for families that have a child with a treatable tumor, they and the child face a long battle as the child tries to resume a 'normal' life. Things that all of us take for granted with healthy children that are able to go to school, college, get a job, marriage, family, etc., are not a given for survivors of a brain tumor."

Mr. Young said that as he got more involved with the PBTF "and learned more about the real stories of families dealing with children afflicted by brain tumors, [he] learned that the PBTF is there to support families as they deal with each step of this terrible disease. While PBTF's principal focus is funding research and trying to find a cure, the family support part of its mission is also very important."

The PBTF is an organization SRS and Mr. Young want to support to help find a cure and make a difference to the 4,000 children (and their families) that are diagnosed each year with brain tumors—unfortunately, the leading cause of non-accidental death of children in the United States.

Whether you participate in an event or not, SRS and the PBTF would certainly appreciate your financial support—of any amount! SRS's overall goal is to raise at least $50,000, and it needs your help to achieve this goal. Here are the locations, dates, and links to join one of the SRS teams as a runner or a contributor.

Thanks for considering this request and supporting SRS's efforts to raise much-needed funds for the PBTF.
