NEW this Year!
Remembrance Ceremony –  We are honored to be hosting our first Remembrance Ceremony at this year’s walk. This is an elective ceremony for people to join if they want to honor a loved one who has passed away. We will take a few minutes to read a poem and listen to a song and reflect on their memory. The ceremony will take place at 8:10 AM, behind the stage. We will be making announcements when that is about to begin.

Choosing Hope Visionary Award – In honor of our 15 year celebration, this award will be given out for the first time and each year from here on. The criteria to win this consists of but is not limited to the following: years of participation, dollars raised, number of team members, number of donors, ability to share team story through personalized team and individual fundraising pages, team vision and ability to share it.

All funds raised through our events allow the National Brain Tumor Society to advance research and public policy to improve the availability of new and better treatments, and fuel the discovery of a cure for brain tumors.
