Ezra loved trains, cars, superheroes and all things “boy.” In August of 2017, at the age of 3, Ezra was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. After a year of living life and fighting the disease, Ezra unfortunately lost his battle in September of 2018 at the very young age of 4. During his illness, Ezra and his family were humbled by the caregivers and all of the support they received from so many people. There were many significant comforts provided to Ezra during this time, including the wonderful doctors and nurses at Dayton Children’s Hospital. Ezra also enjoyed the music therapy program at Dayton Children’s Hospital and this program remains very special to the family. As so much support was provided during Ezra’s illness, the family wants to honor Ezra’s legacy by raising money in support of childhood cancer.

This is the 2nd annual Ezra J. Hartke Race for Hope. The 2019 event raised $18,000 for Dayton Children's that was directed to pediatric brain tumor research.
