Ezra J. Hartke Race for Hope

Saturday, November 11, 2023 | 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


ezra hartke race for hopeEzra 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 support they received from so many people. As so much support was provided during Ezra’s illness, the family is raising money to honor Ezra’s legacy in support of pediatric brain tumor research. 

The Ezra J. Hartke Race for Hope has raised over $50,000 for pediatric brain tumor research!
