2013 Four Seasons Parkway Run & Walk

Hopes & Dreams for Mackenzie

Welcome to the Hopes & Dreams for Mackenzie Team page! This is our 6th year with a team participating in this event. We are excited to be part of the Parkway Run/Walk once again and hope that you can join us for this fun, family-friendly event which supports pediatric cancer research at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

When our daughter Mackenzie was diagnosed with advanced Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma in March 2004 we were devastated, but that was nothing compared to the devastation we've been feeling since she lost her battle to the disease six-years later on March 3, 2010. No family should suffer this pain.

We walk and run In Loving Memory of Mackenzie, in hopes that advances in research will bring about better treatment options and a cure.

Date: Sunday, September 29, 2013
Place: Four Seasons Hotel, One Logan Square, 18th St. & Benjamin Franklin Pkwy, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Registration: 7:00 a.m.

Parking is available at 18th & Cherry Streets. The event will be held rain or shine.

You can donate to our team by clicking on the link to the left and you can join the Hopes and Dreams for Mackenzie team by clicking on the "Join Team" link below. We hope to see you at the event! Mark, Tracy & Carter - Peace

Here is some information and recent statistics on Childhood Cancer taken from CureSearch.org:

Cancer remains the number one cause of death by disease in children. Despite major advances - from an overall survival rate of 10 percent just forty years ago to nearly 80 percent today, for many rare cancers (such as Mackenzie's), the survival rate is much lower. Furthermore, the number of diagnosed cases annually has not declined in nearly 20 years.

*Every day, 36 children are diagnosed with cancer.
*One child out of five who is diagnosed with cancer dies.
*Children's cancer affects all ethnic, gender and socio-economic groups.
*The average age of children diagnosed is six.
*More than 40,000 children undergo treatment for cancer each year.
*Three out of five who survive children's cancer suffer late-effects, such as infertility, heart failure and secondary cancers.
