American Idol David Cook Headlines National Race for Hope
Date:5/1/2009

Best selling recording artist joins thousands this Sunday, May 3, 2009 for one of the country's largest brain tumor research fundraising events

WASHINGTON, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Millions were moved by his voice, now thousands more will lend theirs to his as American Idol(R) winner David Cook takes to a different kind of stage, leading walkers and runners; volunteers and survivors at the 2009 Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers National Race for Hope, this Sunday, May 3, 2009 at 9:00 am in Washington, D.C.

Last season on American Idol(R), Cook spoke frequently of his brother Adam, and his ongoing, valiant battle with brain cancer. The Cook family now unites as one, to walk Pennsylvania Avenue -- America's Main Street -- and send a message of hope and resilience to the millions of families currently facing the same experience.

David Cook will be leading survivors to the start line at 8:30 am and following the race will be available for media interviews at approximately 9:45 am. Cook will address the walkers and runners at a special ceremony beginning at 10:30 am.

The National Race for Hope is one of the nation's most inspirational and successful volunteer charity fundraising events. Serving as honorary chair, Cook adds even more excitement to the annual event, which features a kids' Fun Run, the Wall of Hope, and tributes to brain tumor survivors.

Founded and organized by a volunteer committee, The Race for Hope benefits The Brain Tumor Society (tbts.org) and AOL Founder Steve Case's Washington, D.C. based Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure (abc2.org). Both of these organizations share the volunteer committee's hope for a day when there is a cure, and when all patients with brain tumors are told they have a manageable disease.

Within the next 12 months, more than 200,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. A leading cause of cancer deaths in children and young adults, brain tumors cannot be prevented because their causes are unknown. As there is a notable shortfall in research funding to support discovery of new treatment therapies, we need to increase investments of all kinds in the fight against brain tumors and bring hope to an often overlooked area of medical research.

The Race begins at 9:00 am at Freedom Plaza at 13th and Pennsylvania Avenue.
