Review for Ben's Run / Ben's Gift, Inc., Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Ben's Run is a great race supporting a great cause in memory of a great kid. Ben was my nephew and godson. He was a wonderful guy, who liked to laugh and was a real charmer. Ben bravely battled leukemia for many years and spent many months at Children's National Medical Center before he passed away. This race honors him and helps to raise important money to fight childhood cancers. I encourage you to support it. The course is fairly flat with a few rolling hills through Ben's old neighborhood. The race is well-organized with warm-up music and a DJ before it starts. There is also a silent auction and even an occasional appearance by Batman. There are a few other fund-raisers during the year, such as a comedy club night. All the organizers for these events are volunteers so all your money goes directly where it is needed most.
