Walk benefits local brain cancer research and clinical trials
WHAT: Join us for the 12th Annual Seattle Brain Cancer Walk, a national fundraising event that raises awareness about individuals diagnosed with brain cancer. Each year the Walk supports brain cancer research and clinical trials for families in the Pacific Northwest through the Ben and Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at Swedish Hospital.
Patients with brain cancer, survivors, friends and families join together at Seattle Center to complete a one-mile walk as a symbol of strength and community. The event features a Wall of Honor to celebrate those who lost their battle to brain cancer and to those that are currently fighting brain cancer, live entertainment and a Kids Zone including crafts and face painting.
Participants can walk as individuals or join a team. Online registration is $25 per person and closes at 5:00 p.m. on May 2. On-site registration is $35 per person.
Concluding the Walk is a Survivor Tribute to patients with brain cancer and their families with refreshments and music. Awards will be given to groups and individuals for exceptional fundraising leadership and participation.
Founded by committed volunteers and families in 2008, the Seattle Brain Cancer Walk has raised more than $5.5 million for brain cancer research and clinical trials.
