Ben’s Run is a neighborhood run that honors Ben Goldfogle and raises money each spring for Children’s National Medical Center. Ben passed away from an infection resulting from Acute Myeloid Leukemia on September 3, 2009 at Children’s National after a six-year battle.  It was one month before his 12th birthday.

Since the first Ben’s Run in 2011, Ben’s Run has donated more than $747,500 to Children’s National to improve the treatment of children with cancer. Join Ben’s Run for the 10th and final run in the race to a million dollars.
