Please come join Crossfit Metanoia in raising awarness for DIPG for our 2nd Amazing Grace Event! Last Year we raised an astonishing $10,000 and are hoping to exceed that this year in rememberance of our beautiful Grace White!
Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a type of brain tumor found in the pons, a part of the brainstem on the lower back of the brain, near the top of the spinal cord. DIPG primarily affects children, with most diagnosis occurring between 5 and 7 years of age. Unfortunately, fewer than 10% of children with DIPG survive two years from diagnosis. Amazing Grace began when we learn that one of our local military families was battling DIPG with their 7 year old daughter, Grace White, who was diagnosed on 9 Nov 2014. In honor of Grace, Scott and Amy White have started The Operation Grace White Foundation with the mission to effectively fund Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma(DIPG) research, while inspiring awareness and supporting both the families and those afflicted by DIPG. OGWF is also a member of the DIPG collaborative which also raises money to directly support research and fight DIPG. In order to remain a member of the Collaborative OGWF must continue to raise and donate a set amount each year. 100% of the funds raised in this event will go to the Operation Grace White Foundation (helpfightdipgforgrace.org) to help the Whites achieve their dreams of someday having a cure to protect our sweet children while providing finacial support for other families. Please Join us in remembering Grace and coming together as a community for this awesome event!
