Ella was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer, in 2009 at age 2. Today, Ella is disease-free and a thriving 10 year old.

Ella was, and continues to be, the inspiration of Ella’s Retreat, a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides 100% of longterm lodging costs for families that travel from far distances to come to CHOP to treat their child’s cancer.

Ella’s Retreat is our Mayor’s Cup Charity. We are hosting several run/fundraisers to support the wonderful work they do. If you can’t attend and would like to make a donation, please do so directly to Ella’s Retreat via the link below. Just enter Fishtown Beer Runners as the company and forward your Transaction Receipt email from Ella’s to keith.tomaselli@beerrunners.net so he can send it to the Mayor’s Cup so we get credit for donation.


Thank you on behalf of Ella, Joe & Audrey Walsh.
