Run with your friends; form a team.
Now, let's get out and get ready to run you race.
How do you time your race? Every time you run a Virtual Uberthons race, you receive an Uberthons Timing Watch to time your race - CLICK HERE
Racing bibs are sent with each registration. Bibs are printed by the premier 'race number' company in the USA - Marathon Printing. Your bib will be made of TYVEK® material. You may also print a temporary race number by clicking on the race number.
Your specially designed finishers medal will be sent to you with your timing watch and race number with 15 - 30 days of registering for the event. The medal is large - 3 1/2 inches wide and 5mm thick in the middle! The ribbon is kind of sporty, too.
Once you have completed your race, submit your results to Virtual Uberthons - your results will appear with all those who participate in the Jack's Angels 5k, 10k, or 20k. CLICK HERE to submit your results. Click on this tab to see the results so far:

Why DIPG research?
More children die of DIPG than any other brain tumor, and brain tumors are the leading cause of death in children with cancer. Unfortunately, very little of our US government funds for cancer research benefit pediatric cancers - 4% actually - so that the burden rests with parents and parent-initiated foundations to find solutions to save these children's lives.
We hope to help prioritize the saving of young lives in the medical research system both with our advocacy work, and with our attempts to raise funds for research with other DIPG organizations.
“May Light and Hope replace despair and grief for DIPG children and their families.”—Jack’s Angels Prayer
