Splash For a Cure 5K is a family-friendly run/walk fundraiser for the Ishan Gala Foundation. IGF provides financial and emotional support to families in Virginia with a child fighting cancer. The 5K is followed by a post race party that will feature giant inflatable water slides (for kids and adults), activities, crafts, food trucks, music and more! If you do no wish to participate in the 5K, you may purchase a party only ticket. All 5K registrations include entry to post race party.

About IGF:

IGF was founded by Mayank and Sejal Gala after the loss of their 2 year old son, Ishan, to neuroblastoma in 2008. They witnessed the many hardships families faced and the lack of research for treatment for Neuroblastoma. They began by providing vital research grants to support clinical trials focused on finding less toxic treatments and helping families with financial burdens. In 2015, IGF began to switch its focus on strictly supporting families financially and emotionally in Virginia. This year, we have opened up our financial assistance program to all fighting families in United States.
 
The Ishan Gala Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit with a mission to be present in lives of children fighting cancer and their families to improve their quality of life during and after treatment. IGF fulfills its mission through various programs focused on easing financial stress, celebrating milestones in their lives, comforting during the bad days, and bringing moments of joy and fun into their lives during this extremely long, tough journey. We also help families during the holiday's through our Holiday Cheer Program by fulfilling wishlists, providing wrapping supplies, grocery gift cards and a holiday party exclusively for families. 
 
From something as simple as delivering a smile to taking care of a month of bills …we are there for our families.
