Head for the Cure 5K - St. Louis

Team Cody

We are so excited to be back and to participate again in this wonderful cause! 

We are joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in the Head for the Cure 5K - St. Louis on SaturdayJune 26th, 2022. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.

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.

This cause is especially close to my heart. My father was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiform when I was a freshman in high school in 2008. My world suddenly turned upside down and I experienced first hand how hard this disease can hit. I watched my father, a vibrant, intelligent and loving father and husband fade away. Unfortunately, my dad did not survive, but I am so grateful to have found this cause to try and raise money to help fight this devastating disease and hopefully 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.

Please consider making a donation today to help me reach my goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
