Challenges and Prizes: Southern CA Brain Tumor Walk

Saturday, September 26, 2020, Virtually Broadcasting from Southern, CA


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 individual and team fundraising efforts toward reaching your goals – plus a little friendly competition never hurt! The fundraising prizes are our way of saying “THANK YOU!”

Become a Sponsor
In an effort to help you achieve fundraising heights we developed a 2020 Sponsorship program. If you work at a business that has a “community engagement” team or for a group that would benefit from exposure to 1,800+ walkers from all over the Greater Southern CA area, we would like to talk to you more about how to approach your company and ask for their partnership. Please email to discuss opportunities.

Fundraising Support
We know not everyone is a professional fundraiser, so we have developed a few tools for you to use when reaching out to your friends and family. Visit our Participant Tools website here. Please reach out to your event director Jenifer Prentiss any time for support too at

Individual Fundraising Challenges & Prizes
All registered participants will receive a signature NBTS 2020 Event T-Shirt via mail in the weeks following event day.  You must register by event morning to receive a shirt.

The Michael Yutkin Glass Half Full Award will be awarded annually to a participant who encourages, motivates, inspires, and believes in the mission of the National Brain Tumor Society. Michael Yutkin courageously shared his story and was a deeply valued member of our community. He was not only an integral part of the Volunteer Planning Committee, but was also a consistent top fundraiser for the event, as well as a brain tumor advocate during our annual Head to the Hill events in Washington DC. With the permission of the Yutkin family, the National Brain Tumor Society will select one deserving participant for the Michael Yutkin Champion Award. The recipient of this award will, like Michael, be a stand out champion of the NBTS mission. Michael will forever be missed by his family and friends, but we know his light and legacy will continue to shine for years to come.
