Saturday, November 2, 2019, Hermosa Beach Pier Plaza, Hermosa Beach, CA


2019 Los Angeles Brain Freeze Fundraising Challenges and Prizes

National Brain Tumor Society event participants work very hard – and we appreciate everything you do in the fight against brain tumors. Each fundraising challenge is offered to help maximize your team and fundraising efforts towards reaching your goals – plus a little friendly competition never hurt! The fundraising prizes are our way of saying “THANK YOU!”

Want to send a letter or email out to your friends and family? Here is a Sample Fundraising Letter that you can tailor to your audience. You can also use these Sample Social Media Posts to reach a wider audience online. For more tips and tricks please reach out to your event director, Jeremie Sulit at

In an effort to help you achieve fundraising heights we developed a 2019 Event Sponsorship Package. If you work at a business that has a “community engagement” team or for a group that would benefit from exposure to participants from all over Southern California, we would like to talk to you more about how to approach your company and ask for their partnership. Please email Jeremie Sulit to discuss opportunities.

See “who you walk for” along the Brain Freeze route!

Teams who collectively raise $1,000 or more from now until Friday, October 25th, will have an opportunity to send us a photo of “who you walk for” to be featured on a 12”x18” sign on the beach as they walk along the route toward the ocean for the Brain Freeze. One photo per team and photos must be emailed to Jeremie Sulit by Friday, October 25th.

Earn a VIP area for your team!
All teams who raise $8,000 or more by Thursday, October 31st, will have their own designated team area with a 10×10 tent, an 8’ table, and chairs for your team to use on the day of our event. Your team name will be printed and set out on your table. We encourage you to bring additional folding chairs and décor to personalize your own area!
