Team TT Strong
Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
This year is going to be different kind of year. This year, we will be honoring the memory of Therese. This is the 5th year for Team TT Strong so let's do everything we can to raise as much money as possible, to have the biggest team that we've ever had, and celebrate the life of Therese. Let's make her proud and keep her memory alive as she watches over all of us.
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Metro KC 5K on August 29, 2021. 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 87,000 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!
