NEW this Year!
Remembrance Ceremony – Will take place at 8:10 AM, East of the stage and playground. This is an elective ceremony for people to join if they want to honor a loved one who has passed away. We will take a few minutes to read a poem and listen to a song and reflect on their memory.
Sharing Hope Visionary Award – We will be recognizing a special team for the first ever “Sharing Hope Visionary Award.” Criteria to achieve this honor is comprised of several components, but not limited to amount fundraised, number of team members, sharing of their story on team page and social media, years participated and so many others. This is an honor bestowed upon teams that go above and beyond in more than just fundraising and spread awareness for the NBTS mission.
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.
