Welcome to the Boston Brain Tumor Ride, an event to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Boston Brain Tumor Ride offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause, and helps to educate the local community on the diverse needs of the brain tumor community.
All funds raised through our events allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors.

Also recognized was this years Spirit Award winner; Katie Federico, our four-year Brain Tumor Ride Director, and this year finally did the ride herself!
Although this year’s ride is over, it’s hardly in the rearview mirror. Every day we inch closer to our 2017 goal of $625,000. (currently we are approaching $550,000!) Fundraising continues though July so please, don’t rest on your laurels. Don’t relax in on the couch or in the back seat. And don’t take what we’ve already accomplished for granted. Continue your outreach, keep on your donors, and keep the dollars coming in. We are making progress in the effort to find a cure. We are making a difference. We are saving people’s lives.
The 24th Boston Brain Tumor Ride is May 20, 2018. Put it on your calendar.
With love to all,
Michael Corkin and Steven Branfman
