Important Logistical Information 
Due to COVID-19 we have transitioned the Phoenix Brain Tumor Walk to a virtual platform. We invite you to walk in your neighborhood, take photos that reflect your community and share what you see by using #phxBTW2020 and #WhyWeWalk. We may just include your images in the event day program.

Awards and Recognition
We will be recognizing a special team for the second annual “Choosing 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 registered participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt via mail in the weeks following the event. To maximize every dollar raised, National Brain Tumor Society only provides event t-shirts to registered participants and registered survivors.

Event Activities/Information

Create an ornament and share it on our virtual “Cactus of Hope.” We recommend bringing a small picture of those you walk for to personalize your ornament.
