What Does a Virtual 5K Mean?

How Can I Help? Encourage registration and donations! Our grants for clinical research and patient programs to Texas Oncology - Austin Brain Tumor Center and the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative come from our race revenue. We can't make an impact in this fight to find a cure for brain cancer without YOU!

Packet Pickup

We will be MAILING all shirts and medals to each participant rather than hosting an in-person packet pick up. We know how important these items are to everyone and our goal was to provide these items to you prior to race weekend. However, Head for the Cure always wants to ensure the safety of all of our supporters, caregivers, and survivors and we feel that canceling packet pick up is a necessary measure. 

Please note that we will send updates when those items will be mailed while we are also following the shelter-in-place guidelines for our staff. For this Sunday's virtual event, we encourage you to wear your team shirts or a shirt from a previous year!   

Please email courtney@headforthecure.org for any questions!
