Head for the Cure 5K - Columbus


I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Columbus on August 9, 2020. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.

My Husband, Ron, was diagnosed with a brain tumor on our wedding anniversary this year. He had surgery to remove a 6cm tumor from his frontal lobe, and he is now completing chemo and radiation. 

Running has been a constant in our life, now more than ever! I can't think of a better way to show him support for his journey. Also, there may be birthday cake (Its Ron's birthday weekend!).....

Please come share some miles with us to raise funds/awareness for brain cancer research!  

Let's find a cure so there are No-Mo Astrocytomas! 


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 80,000 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!
