Summer Community Beneficiary:
Head for the Cure

The mission of Head for the Cure is to raise awareness and funding to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. 

They accomplish this by hosting a series of 5K runs/walks and other events to raise funding in support of brain cancer research benefiting local beneficiaries and our national beneficiary, The Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC).  They also provide support through our programs including Brains for the Cure, survivor luncheons and other community engagements.  All of these events and programs allow us to raise funds, awareness and hope for the brain tumor community.
