Falls Church Kiwanis Little League: Welcome

Join Team Jimmy

We have some news to share about one of our FCKLL players. Jimmy Alverson has recently learned he has a brain tumor. He underwent seven hours of surgery to have it removed and tests have shown that the tumor was a cancerous medulloblastoma tumor. Jimmy is about to begin a treatment regimen over the next several months that will include radiation treatment and chemotherapy

One way that you can help support Jimmy is to participate in the Race for Hope 5K run/walk in Washington, DC on Sunday, May 3rd. The Race for Hope is one of the leading fundraisers benefitting brain tumor research. Jimmy and his parents, Jim and Susan, invite all those who know Jimmy to express their support, regardless of whether it is in the form of a monetary contribution for the race, or simply moral support for Jimmy and all those running and walking in the Race for Hope as part of Team Jimmy. 


To join Team Jimmy to run/walk and/or to make a contribution:

2.  Click on Registration.

3.  Click on Join a Team

4.  In the “Team Name” box, key in Team Jimmy, then hit Enter

5.  The name Team Jimmy should appear at the bottom of screen.  Click on the team name.

6.  You can then choose to “Donate to Team” or “Join Team”.


Once you have joined the team, you can click on “Your Participant Center” to then send emails to others asking them to join and support Team Jimmy. You can even customize your Personal Page.


Online registration ends on Sunday, April 26th, but there is an opportunity to register the morning of the Race, although it is much easier to register online.


For those that are able to walk or run, we will coordinate meeting the morning of the race and carpooling downtown. Please consider joining the team and walking or running (or both). It will be a lot of fun and help support a great cause!
