Ezra J. Hartke Race for Hope

Saturday, November 16, 2024 | 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Kyle Park, Tipp City, OH

Team Ezra 2023Ezra 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.  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 research and care.

Proceeds go to Dayton Children’s Hospital and Pediatric brain tumor research. Thank you for your support!
