SMS Class of '77
Thank you for visiting the SMS Class of '77 page and considering joining our team!
Chris Anthony (SMS Class of '84) passed away from brain cancer in 2003. That same year, Chris' brother, and our classmate, Matt Anthony, founded Head for the Cure. Begnning that year, and every year since, many of us from the Class of '77 have supported, volunteered, and participated in this event. This is the 4th year for the SMS Class of '77 team! Our goal is to make this event more successful than ever! And fun! On Sunday, August 30, 2020, at the Head for the Cure Metro KC Virtual 5K, join us as we walk and visit with our classmates! This is a family event, so bring your spouse, significant other, kids, grandkids, and friends! Help join the fight against brain cancer and have a blast at the same time! **Meet us at the merchandise tent before the race!!!

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 200,000 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.
Thank you and we hope to see you August 25th!
