Thank you for visiting the TICKHILL TITANS team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
Once again our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in the Head for the Cure 5K - Cleveland on Saturday, October 8, 2022. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
We are walking in honor of Craig Tickhill who passed away May 2020 of a GBM Stage 4 and all others who have been touched by this disease. Craig was a wonderful person who loved life fiercely and shared his joy freely. Always there with a quick story or funny anecdote, he brightened up any room. An avid lover of cars, mid-century modern, sci-fi and Christmas, among many other things. He had a great eye for detail and a phenomenal memory. Craig was always willing to help those in need, and we continue his journey to raise funds for a great cause and to find a cure.
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.
