Head for the Cure 5K - Metro KC

Dick's Tiger Club

Thank you for visiting our team 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 Sunday, August 29th, 2021. We are supporting our Dad/Grandpa, and biggest Mizzou Tiger fan we know - hence the team name! He ended his fight with Glioblastoma in September 2020.  We miss him and think about him every day. His jokes and quick wit will never be forgotten. We appreciate any support you can provide to this great organization that continues to help find a cure for this terrible disease. Our motto during his fight was "You'll Never Walk Alone" (Go Liverpool FC!) because he was never alone while he battled GBM and we know we are never alone and he's always with us now. #YNWA

Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. 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!
