Boston Brain Tumor Walk

Sunday, October 18, 2020, Virtually Broadcasting from Boston, MA

We are honored and delighted to be celebrating the 11th Annual Boston Brain Tumor Walk on October 18, 2020. Over the last 10 years the Boston Brain Tumor Walk has raised over $5 Million towards brain tumor research. All proceeds raised allow National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy, we aim to improve the availability of new and better treatments and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors. This event offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember loved ones and connect with others in the brain tumor community.

Thank you for your past and current support!

EVENT DETAILS:

National Brain Tumor Society’s top priority is the health of the brain tumor community. Due to the CDC’s recommendations, our 11th Annual  Boston Brain Tumor Walk will be virtual. While we’re disappointed we won’t be able to see everyone in person, NBTS remains committed to rallying the New England brain tumor community in an inspiring day of honor, remembrance, hope, and unity for all those who’ve been impacted by this disease and hope you’ll join us online.

We greatly appreciate our community’s understanding and flexibility during this public health crisis. Your support and commitment to helping us achieve our mission and vision are critical to everything we do at NBTS. We would not be able to move forward with our efforts to fight brain tumors without your continued inspiration, dedication, and generosity. We ask and hope that you will remain engaged with NBTS throughout this period.
