2020 Southern California Brain Tumor Walk Fundraising Incentives
Incentives are a fun way for National Brain Tumor Society to thank you for your support of the Southern California Brain Tumor Walk and your commitment to raising funds for our crucial mission. We also encourage you to wear your NBTS gear as often as possible to spread awareness for this incredibly worthy organization. Please note the following:
- All registered participants will receive a signature NBTS 2020 Event T-Shirt either on event day or following via mail. You must register by event morning to qualify.
- The below individual incentives levels are NOT cumulative. The Monday following your event, you will receive an online survey based on the items you qualify for. Please select one item. Please note, qualification will be based on the dollars you have raised on your personal webpage.
- Please be mindful of the size of the item you order. Once an order has been fulfilled, we will not be able to exchange sizes.
- Incentives are one per participant, regardless of total dollars raised.

In an effort to help you achieve fundraising heights we developed a 2020 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.

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 Orange County Brain Tumor Walk 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.
