Head for the Cure 5K - Omaha

For Pete's Sake

Family and friends,

In honor of our Dad, Dr. Peter Michael Townley, we will be participating in the Head for the Cure's annual race in Omaha on Saturday, August 1st. We are looking forward to taking Head for the Cure by storm again this year to remember Pete, AND ONCE AGAIN WIN TOP PRIZES FOR FUNDRAISING AND TEAM SIZE. Please join our team as a runner (or walk with Liam) in remembrance of our father. 

Head for the Cure is an organization that is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. 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.

Race Details

The race is in Akarsaban this year!

On the day of the race, please wear your team t-shirt or gray in support of our team. Feel free to accesorize with anything that reminds you of Pete - like Red Sox or Creighton Blue Jays gear. 

The race this year is on a Saturday morning. We are planning a team get-together, either on Friday before the race or Saturday after the race. Please check back for more details as it gets closer to race day.
