Update: The Results Are In!
We exceeded our donation goal for the 2017 race for hope with $2,140 raised for the National Brain Tumor Society!
While the race is over, that doesn’t mean you can’t still join our team. You can continue to donate on our team page.
Special thanks to everyone who donated or came out to show their support! We had a blast. Check out the video below for highlights:
Gearing Up for Our Sixth Year
For the sixth year running, the team at Milanese Remodeling will be participating in the
Philadelphia Race for Hope, an annual timed 5K (3.1 mile) walk or run that raises awareness and funds for brain tumor research.
All funds raised during this event will be donated to the National Brain Tumor Society in order to advance research and public policy to make treatments more widely available and help to find a cure.
This cause is near and dear to our hearts, as we lost our own Gabe Milanese Jr. to a brain tumor. Check out our post about last year’s Race for Hope.

Why We Run
This July marked the fourth anniversary of the death of Gabe Milanese Jr., who was a huge part of our lives here at Milanese Remodeling. When Gabe was first diagnosed with the brain tumor that ended his life, some of his first thoughts were of how he could give back to others.
We will always remember Gabe and admire his selflessness.
