Important Cupcake Run Update

New Date: July 18, 2020

Due to the recent extension of the quarantine and shelter in place restrictions in our area through April 30, we have made the decision to reschedule our 5K Cupcake Run to July 18 with an earlier start time of 7:30 AM to avoid the summer Texas heat. This is an unprecedented global public health issue and we must do our part to act responsibly. Our top priority is always the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, staff, and spectators. We are committed to organizing a safe and efficient event, and it is clear that it would be difficult to do during the month of May. 

Here are the options available to you: 

Current Registrant- If you signed up as a runner, your registration will automatically move to our new date on July 18. There's nothing else you need to do. If you have not registered, early bird registration has been extended through the end of online registration on midnight July 15. 
Go Virtual- If you signed up as a runner and are not able to participate on this new date, we can switch your registration to our virtual option at no additional cost to you. Please respond to this email or send us an email to cupcakerunsa@strongerthandipg.org. We will mail out the packet to your home within two weeks after the race. We will include our 2020 Cupcake Run T-shirt and Custom Cupcake Run Finisher Medal. We will make this option available to you through June 1. After this date, you can switch your event but you will be required to pay the difference. 
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.
If you have already registered, please complete survey below.

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results.

We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at our next event. Your registration fee and all proceeds from the race will go to a great cause and help fund pediatric brain cancer research and help families affected by it.

Description
Covid-19 Update: We are closely monitoring the latest news for the Covid-19 health situation in our area and will continue to send updates on this ever changing situation to keep you informed of any changes that may occur.  (Read full update here)
Join us for a great cause. Gabriella’s Smile Foundation is hosting their Third Annual 5k Cupcake Run 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.
