advoKate is a volunteer organization supporting pediatric brain tumor prevention and reseach, as well as other childhood-related causes. It was established to honor the memory of 6-year-old Kate Hrischuk of Rochester, MI, who lost her courageous battle with an intrinsic brain stem glioma in early 2007. advoKate was founded by Kate's parents whom have taken on the mission to raise awareness about the issue of limited available research on the disease that took their daugher's life. With the help of event participants and sponsors, advoKate has, so far, raised nearly $50k for the cause. For more information about Kate and her story, visit www.caringbridge.org/visit/katehrischuk
