Braincancer.org would like to announce the 2015 8th Annual Seattle Brain Cancer Walk will be taking place on Sunday May 3, 2015. Again, the event will take place at the Seattle Center but this year it will be at the Fisher Pavillion (see map below).
We’re excited to have the 8th Annual Seattle Brain Cancer Walk in the month of May, which is brain tumor awareness month. Last year this event hosted over 3000 participants, and raised nearly $700,000. 100% of the money raised from the walk goes to brain cancer research at the Ben and Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at Swedish Neuroscience Institute. The funds are allowing us to do the elevated research with direct patient care impact. These include novel treatments based on highthroughput drug screening and glioblastoma, antiviral therapies, injured Exxcel immunotherapy approaches, discovery of novel biomarkers, and discovery of possible viral causes a brain cancer.
The walk was established in 2008 by a group of committed volunteers and families. The first walk occurred in the Mercer Island high school stadium. Since then, the walk has evolved to raise more than 3-1/2 million dollars for research clinical trials and comprehensive care for brain cancer patients in the Pacific Northwest.
Please register for the walk and tell your friends and family to join you by coming out in May to support brain cancer patients, their families, and brain tumor awareness. Your support will provide life-saving brain cancer research. Go to www.braincancerwalk.org to register today!
