Head for the Cure 5K - Metro KC

Team Steve Clarke

Thank you for visiting the TEAM CLARKE #LIV page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!

Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Metro KC on August 29th, 2021. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. 

 

The fight against brain cancer is very personal to us. On Feb. 3rd, Steve was diagnosed with GBM IV. Boy, was that a shocker!! But, true to Steve's character, he adjusted to the news and became determined to live a great life and beat his cancer! Steve has made significant changes to his lifestyle in order to fight the fight. But, it has been a community effort with the much appreciated support of loved ones-family and friends.

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.

So, Steve says, comes support us! Join our team and if you are able OPEN YOUR WALLETS or YOUR SPOUSES WALLET! :) 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!
