We are closing in on the last few days before the 7th Annual Seattle Brain Cancer Walk. This event was initiated by my predecessor, Dr. Greg Foltz and wonderful volunteers at Northwestern Mutual in 2007.

From a small group at Mercer Island High School to the current 3000+ participants here at the Seattle Center, this event has grown exponentially. Thousands of brain tumor patients and family members have benefited from this one great day of solidarity for their cause.  We celebrate all of those impacted by this disease we call brain cancer.  It is a wonderful morning filled with music, entertainment, gifts, photography, and heart.

Over the years this walk has raised more than 2.5 million dollars, 100% of which has gone to brain tumor research. The last day to register is tomorrow, September 17th, so please make sure that you and your team are signed up!  If you’re unable to attend you can be a virtual walker as well and still raise funds.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Join us as we walk together to build awareness and advance the search for the cure!

Kids Zone

The Kids Zone will contain many fun activities for the whole family including crafts, face painting, and more. Be sure to stop by with your young participants or any of your young at heart team members!

Patient Survivor Tent

Patients and Survivors are invited to this very special place on the day of the Walk. One highlight is the “Gift of Experiences”. Every patient and survivor will be able to choose an experience to take with them to enjoy at a later date with family and friends or for a day of self-care and pampering.
