Gus Evangelides lost his battle with a brain tumor just three months shy of his second birthday. Now, his inspiring legacy lives on.

When you participate in Run for Gus, your donations directly support Lurie Children’s Brain Tumor Center. Lurie Children’s Brain Tumor Center offers highly specialized state-of-the-art care, while also providing patient support programs like Beads of Courage. It’s not always easy to fully capture a patient’s experience in words. This program encourages children to string together beads, each representing a milestone in their journey, helping tell their story of courage in a unique, tangible way. By joining us this July, you can honor Gus and support thousands of children battling brain tumors.
