Walking in the Denver Area: Due to COVID-19, we have transitioned the Denver Brain Tumor Walk to a virtual platform. We invite you START NOW! Begin by walking in your neighborhood or hiking on your favorite trail. Take photos that reflect your community and share what you see by using #DenverBTW. We may just include your images in the event day program!

Share Your Experience and Raise Awareness: We encourage you to walk in your neighborhood (as appropriate), walk inside on your treadmill or lap the living room! The point is, walk anytime leading up to event morning and share your experience with us on social media using the hashtag #DenverBTW2020. Print the bib below, decorate it along with any other creative ideas you have like: designing t-shirts, make signs, decorate your living room, and dress up your furry friends.

Sharing Hope Visionary Award:
We will be recognizing a special team for the second annual, “Sharing Hope Visionary Award.” Event though we have gone virtual, criteria to achieve this honor has not changed. They are 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 and the Denver Brain Tumor Walk.

*If you have any questions about any of the above listed information please don’t hesitate to reach out to your local staff person, Tasha Duncan at tduncan@braintumor.org.
