Head for the Cure - Metro KC Virtual 5K

Storm Strong

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

Our team, STORM STRONG, is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Metro KC on August 30th, 2020. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. 

We are walking in remembrance of Storm (Shannon) Holmes. Storm was a beautiful soul whose life was cut short on January 20, 2020 after a hard fought battle with brain cancer. She was only 26 years old. 

In November of 2018 Storm was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal brain cancer. A heartbreaking reality she faced with such grace. As she would say "it goes on". Cancer didn't stop her from living life to the fullest and marrying the man she loved so dearly. 

In October of 2019 Storm learned the cancer spread to her spine. 

We were so thankful for the holidays with Storm. Her laugh and smile could light up a room and brought so much joy to so many. The impact she made and continues to make on her family and friends is unlike any other. 

We are hoping to plan a team walk down at Macken Park where we can end our walk at her memorial bench. We would love for you to be a part of that or to participate in your own hometowns! 

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!
