Hello and welcome!

The family and friends of Steve Murphy got together to raise money for 2019’s Head for the Cure’s Des Moines 5k event on May 19. Together, we raised $8,189 for brain cancer clinical trials. Our team was recognized as the largest team and the top fundraising team in Des Moines! In addition, we had all three of the top individual fundraisers: Hannah Carr-Murphy, Molly Knapp, and Colleen Murphy Knapp. The amazing outpouring of support from our friends and family across the country has reminded us of the spirit of generosity Steve embodied, and it has shown us that we continue to be in people’s minds and hearts.

For 2019, we set the bar high, but Steve taught us never to shrink from a challenge. We set a goal for $5,000, and exceeded that by far. We were so honored to be a part of Head for the Cure, an organization that has raised over $10 million to fight brain cancer. Unfortunately, everyone who loved my dad Steve knows there is a lot left to do in the fight against brain cancer, but we have been humbled and encouraged by every single person who contributed this year!!

Thank you to our 2019
