David Cook Runs in the Race For Hope – Washington DC

The Race for hope begins with David Cook leading the brain tumor survivors via @SteveCase.

David Cook ran and completed the 5k run/walk  Race For Hope in Washington DC this morning! His team were the #1 fundraisers, raising over $150, 000 to help support the brain tumor community.

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

“Such an amazing day!, ” tweeted David after the race, “Thanks to everyone who came out and/or donated. And don’t forget you can still donate!”  (Donate to David’s team HERE.)

After the race, David spoke to the crowd.  As soon as video surfaces, I’ll post it here!
