Important Cupcake Run Update
6/25 RACE UPDATE:
WE ARE GOING VIRTUAL!
Covid-19 cases have exponentially increased these last two weeks and we understand the Governor as well as our San Antonio Mayor, have now scaled back the outdoor gathering limit to no more than 10. 
With this new development, we feel that it will be in the best interest of our supporters and runners to avoid large gatherings at this time including our annual 5K Cupcake Run. While we are disappointed to have to make this decision, we feel it is the right one to make. 
We will be running virtually but together
We are excited about partnering with Charge Running for our 5K Cupcake Run. We will be able to race together and even cheer for our runners on race day! How awesome is that? Take a few moments to learn more about Charge Running
and their virtual race option! Our pre-race program starts at 7:00 AM on Facebook Live. At 7:25 AM, all runners will log on to the app and begin the 5K at 7:30 AM. Detailed instructions will be sent to all runners prior to the 5K. 
Please make sure you are following our Facebook page and our Facebook event for all of our weekly updates. 
Lastly, please remember to follow the CDC guidelines on how to best protect yourself and others.
We will not be able to offer refunds per standard race policy and the race waiver, but your registration fee and all proceeds from the race will go to a great cause and help fund pediatric brain cancer and help families affected by it.

Virtual 5K Cupcake Run
Description
Join us for a great cause. Gabriella’s Smile Foundation is hosting their Third Annual 5k Cupcake Run presented by Community First Health Plans on July 18, 2020. The 5K where everyone Runs for Cupcakes! Burn off some calories and enjoy a cupcake (or two) on us! Runners AND walkers welcome! This is a family friendly event for everyone and kids ages 5-14 can register as official participants. 
May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month and we are raising money for Pediatric Brain Cancer Research. Cupcakes were Gabriella‘s favorite  and we want to share some with you while raising money to help fund brain cancer research and The Cure Starts Now.
 
FINDING A CURE FOR PEDIATRIC BRAIN CANCER
A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to The Cure Starts Now. Since 2007, The Cure Starts Now has been one of the leaders in non-government funding of pediatric brain cancer research and a pioneer to the efforts to find the home-run cure to all cancers, starting with DIPG. 100% of donations made to The Cure Starts Now go directly to research. 
 
MORE THAN JUST CUPCAKES
We so appreciate all those who register for the race, but also all those who donate and fundraise on our behalf.
We encourage you to not only participate by registering for the event, but to participate fully by donating and by creating your own personalized fundraising page.
Choose “Become a Fundraiser” to create an individual fundraising page, or create your own fundraising team. You can choose to customize the page during registration or after via the link in the confirmation email, or just use it as is. Then all you need to do is share your page with your family and friends.
Do you have TEN friends who would donate $10 to your efforts? If so, choose to be a fundraiser. It takes little effort, but makes a huge difference. 
Participants who raise a minimum of $150 are eligible for some great incentive prizes so make sure you check them out.
 
ABOUT THE RACE
Gabriella’s 5k Cupcake Run and Gabriella’s Smile Foundation is named after Gabriella Elise Torres, who was 5 when she battled Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a terminal form of brain cancer. She died just 8 days after her 6th birthday on November 7, 2015.
Gabriella’s 5k Cupcake Run is the first of its kind here in the San Antonio community for Brain Tumor Awareness Month, which is in May. It’s the first 5k dedicated to pediatric brain cancer research in our community.
