Since 2009, Ben Ripstein has served as president of Midwest Motors, Inc., a dealer of late-model, luxury vehicles in the Chicago area. Along with his passion for automobiles, Ben Ripstein advocates for medical research as a supporter of the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA).

The first organization of its kind, the ABTA has supported education, research, and outreach for more than 40 years. In this effort, the association continually strives to find innovative ways to fundraise and generate new resources for medical professionals and their patients. One leading campaign is the ABTA Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk.

A nationwide event, the Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk, also known as the BT5K, occurs annually in select cities. The 2017 BT5K in Chicago will start at 9 a.m. on April 23, 2017, at the Soldier Field Stadium Green. Participants will have the opportunity to create or join a team and work toward the community goal of raising $910,000 for brain tumor research.
