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.

Read below for a note from the Boston Brain Tumor Ride Co-Chairs:
Our Ride Kickoff Reception last month was a rousing success. With a gallery of outstanding art, food from Sweet Basil, dessert from The Cheesecake Factory, wine from Huntington Wine and Liquors, an array of raffle items that were mind blowing, and a crowd overflowing with enthusiasm, how could it not be?
And just because it’s winter, let’s not forget about the bike? It’s one of the ways that we channel our energies to support the critical work that the NBTS does for those in need and it’s the theme for the Boston Brain Tumor Ride. We don’t know about you, but with January’s weather as cooperative as it was, we took advantage of it and already have 500+ miles on our saddles for the year. And not one of those miles spins by without us sharing our dedication to the Boston Brain Tumor Ride and the NBTS with our riding friends. Do they tire of hearing us talk about the ride? No. Do they tire hearing us recruit them for the ride? No. Just like our Kickoff Reception, the success of our ride depends on an enthusiastic crowd. So do your part. Get yourself registered and then invite your friends to do the same. If you share your enthusiasm and dedication, you’ll find that you won’t have to do too much selling. But if you have to twist a few arms, be gentle. Your friends will find that having untwisted arms will help their riding.
Our February event is a social gathering on February 15 at the Stoughton House of Brews. Join us and bring your friends. While you relax with some refreshments and conversation, we’ll do the arm twisting.
Best to all,
Michael Corkin and Steven Branfman
