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.
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. Registration will be available Saturday, May 20th at Packet Pick-Up from 4-6PM and the day of the ride on Sunday, May 21st at the Registration Tent starting at 7:00AM – both at 200West Street, Waltham.
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.

Read below for a note from the Boston Brain Tumor Ride Co-Chairs:
It’s hard to believe that a year will have gone by, but it has, and here we are with just days to go before we gather for our 23rd Boston Brain Tumor Ride. Your Ride Committee has worked themselves to the bone reviewing, discussing, evaluating, planning and preparing for the event. We want all of our participants, riders, volunteers, friends and family to have a great experience! You’ve been training, fundraising, and recruiting new riders and volunteers. Our individual efforts will culminate and combine and we know that the result will be nothing short of remarkable. The effort that we put into powering our bicycles as we climb a hill, as we pedal through the rain, and into a headwind is a metaphor for the much greater and often daunting effort that those who we help face every day. What we have done and what the event will usher in is more knowledge, more understanding, more treatment options, more services, more people being helped and more lives being saved.
So, with just days to go, get yourself ready by logging a few more miles of training. Organize your teammates. Reach out to your friends to join you on the ride, and continue to apply that gentle, yet convincing arm twist to your donors to show their support with a donation towards your efforts. We’re all in this together to make a difference in people’s lives.
See you on Sunday. It will be a great day!!!
With love to all,
Michael Corkin and Steven Branfman
