Long Island Brain Tumor Walk

Saturday, October 3, 2020, Virtually Broadcasting from Long Island, NY

COVID19 / Coronavirus EVENTS UPDATE https://events.braintumor.org/

Welcome to the 2020 Long Island Brain Tumor Walk, an event to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Long Island Brain Tumor Walk offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause, and helps to educate the local community on the diverse needs of the brain tumor community.

EVENT DETAILS:
National Brain Tumor Society’s top priority is the health of the brain tumor community. Due to the CDC’s recommendations, our 2020 Long Island Brain Tumor Walk will be virtual. While we’re disappointed we won’t be able to see everyone in person, NBTS remains committed to rallying the New York brain tumor community in an inspiring day of honor, remembrance, hope, and unity for all those who’ve been impacted by this disease and hope you’ll join us online.

We greatly appreciate our community’s understanding and flexibility during this public health crisis. Your support and commitment to helping us achieve our mission and vision are critical to everything we do at NBTS. We would not be able to move forward with our efforts to fight brain tumors without your continued inspiration, dedication, and generosity. We ask and hope that you will remain engaged with NBTS throughout this period.
