National Brain Tumor Society WALKS, RIDES, and RACES

Plans are underway for 2021

December 8, 2020

As we reflect on 2020, we are humbled by the commitment and passion of the brain tumor community. During the most challenging of times, our community came together to bring awareness to our mission and to raise critical funds. Together we celebrated our survivors, honored those no longer with us, and supported one another virtually. Whether you were able to join us for a virtual event, share a social post, or simply hold space for our mission in your heart, your continued support during this time allowed NBTS to pivot quickly and adapt our resources and services in light of a global health crisis. We will continue to evolve and serve you as we move into 2021.

Events will take place virtually through the first half of the year. Spring walks, rides, and races may look different in 2021, but they are not canceled. On Sunday, May 2, when we would historically host our annual Race for Hope DC, we will host our first-ever National Brain Tumor Walk and Race for Hope DC, where we invite the entire brain tumor community to come together on one day to work toward a common goal. Following our walk, on Sunday, May 16, we will host our first-ever National Brain Tumor Ride. There will be space for participants of all of our local spring events to celebrate in their own unique way as part of these national events.

For those of you who historically participate in a Fall Walk, Race or Freeze, we want to reassure you that your event is front of mind and we will reach out with more information about the plans for all Fall events no later than early April.

There is still much uncertainty about what the future holds, but the National Brain Tumor Society remains committed to the health and safety of our community and to working toward our mission of conquering and curing brain tumors — once and for all.

More details and registration pages will be available in January. In the meantime, please know how grateful we are for your support this past year. We look forward to partnering with you in 2021!

Today, nearly 700,000 Americans are living with a brain tumor. And, many more will be diagnosed each year. Brain tumors are deadly, and can strike men, women, and children at any time. Unite with us in the fight against brain tumors, and take part in one of our many events nationwide – search for an event near you to register today!

All funds raised allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance strategic research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure. Learn more about the National Brain Tumor Society.

Your participation and support is sincerely appreciated by all those affected by brain tumors, and vital to our mission for a cure.
