November 3, 2018, Scott's Addition, Richmond, VA (intersection of McTavish & Moore St.)

Welcome to the Inaugural Richmond Brain Tumor Brewhaha in Scott’s Addition!  We thank you for supporting the National Brain Tumor Society’s efforts to find a cure for brain tumors, and improve the quality of life and treatment options for those living with a Brain Tumor.  We are STRONGER TOGETHER, and we are happy to have found a new home in Richmond!

The Brain Tumor Brewhaha is a Family Friendly Timed 5K Run and Walk to raise awareness and funds for the Brain Tumor Community. Late morning festivities will be followed by an afternoon Vendor “crawl” through Scott’s Addition neighborhood.  National Brain Tumor Society will be securing perks and benefits from area Restaurants, Retail Shops, Health & Wellness studios, Breweries etc; for our wristband wearing participants.  Those benefits can be redeemed following the race/ walk.  Wristbands are available for purchase when you register.  Details surrounding those benefits will be rolled out on an on-going basis, so check back frequently!
