TBF is humbled and grateful to have been part of this incredible effort to raise awareness and funds for needed research.

Kicking off the Race Series, on Saturday, Sept. 17, brain aneurysm survivor Tricia Scobey hosted the NJ 5K in Saddle Brook NJ. Race Director Scobey, who has undergone numerous surgeries following her 2020 rupture, welcomes the race series as another avenue to raise funds and awareness levels.

On September 18, friends and famly gathered in CT, TX and DE for the 2nd annual fundraiser to honor Annie Mirra, a 29 year old wife and mother, who passed away in 2020 from a ruptured brain aneurysm.

Over 300 supporters gathered in Staten Islands’ Wolfe’s Pond Park on September 24th, for the first annual run/walk to pay tribute to Brittany McCarthy, a vibrant 21 year old who lost her life to a rupture in 2021. Her mother, Patricia, and sister Ashley have tirelessly devoted themselves to awareness efforts and fund raising for The Bee Foundation in her honor, and their efforts have led to the first TBF Brittany McCarthy Research Grant.

The family of Gloria Lejano, a beloved mom, friend and brain aneurysm victim, invited friends and supporters to honor her in virtual events and in-person races in Maryland and San Diego on September 25th. Thank you to Gloria’s son Phillip for making this a reality.

On September 30th walkers and runners participated in the Philly Vynamic Run, culminating at the bike rack honoring Jenny Sedney, whose death in 2013 prompted co-founders Erin Kreszl and Christine Kondra to start The Bee Foundation. 

A key supporter of The Bee Foundation, Vynamic is the Title Prevention Sponsor of the TBF race series and we could not be more grateful!

Held this year in Burlington, VT on October 2, the Rita Skertich Run honors Elizabeth Ratta’s grandmother, who had a brain aneurysm long before there was any awareness and advanced treatment of aneurysms.
 
The Run supports the Rita Skertich grant dedicated to brain aneurysm research for Blacks, Hispanics, and women – three of the populations most adversely affected by brain aneurysms.
