David Cook ran in the Race for Hope this morning in Washington DC. It’s his 4th year participating in the event that raises funds to eradicate brain cancer. David’s team raised almost  $80,000 for the cause.  You can still donate on David’s team page.

David runs in honor of his brother Adam Cook who succumbed to the disease on May 2,  2009,  just hours before he ran in the 2009 Race for Hope.

After finishing the race, David tweeted, “Great weekend!  Thanks to everyone involved for helping make it that way.”

Last night, David performed an acoustic concert for the “Night Of Hope” fundraiser. Check out his performance of the moving “Permanent” below.
