Thank you for visiting our Team Nicholson page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal! This will be our eighth year participating in the North Texas 5K. Since 2014 our team has raised over $50,000 and we have even bigger goals for 2021! In 2014 Dave walked with us and, now that he is gone, we are determined to honor his spirit as we continue to work to raise funds for research to find a cure for this disease that took him much too young.
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in our third Head for the Cure North Texas virtual 5K Walk/Run on May 1, 2021. Hopefully next year we can gather and walk together once again.He
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.
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!
