2019 Chicago

Team Wally

Many of you know that our family had an annual Labor Day party that Wally loved each year. This year we've decided to walk in this fundraiser for Brain Cancer research in his honor and then have a "tailgate" party in our backyard after the run/walk. Please join us for either the walk or the party... or both! We hope it's a good chance to reconnect with the people that Wally loved and to raise some money for research that may spare another family heartache.

Details for the race are on this website. The party will be at the Obrochta house, starting at 3:00.

Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!

Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Chicago on September 15th, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. 

Head for the Cure works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. Every Head for the Cure event marks a day of celebration where those diagnosed with brain cancer are honored and celebrated by their friends and families, those who have lost their battles are remembered, and we are all inspired to carry on the fight. 

Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.

Each year, over 79,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.

Please consider making a donation today to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
