The Boston Brain Tumor Walk, a family-friendly event to help support those affected by brain tumors and raise funds to support research and find a cure.

Nearly 700,000 people in the U.S.

are living with a brain tumor, and close to 14,000 people will die because of the disease this year alone.

Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related death in children under age 20, and third leading among young adults age 20-39.

Only one out of three adults diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor today will be alive in five years.

More so than any other cancer, a brain tumor can have life-altering psychological, cognitive, behavioral, and physical effects.

Despite these facts, brain tumor research remains underfunded; in fact, there are only four FDA approved drugs available today to treat brain tumors.

The 5K Boston Brain Tumor Walk is an inspiring, family-friendly fundraising event that connects teams of brain tumor survivors, patients, family members, caregivers, and friends all committed to supporting and honoring those affected by this deadly disease and raising money to find a cure.

All proceeds benefit the National Brain Tumor Society (www.braintumor.org), the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the brain tumor community in the U.S., and go toward raising vital awareness of the disease and funding critical brain tumor research for the discovery of new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for those living with brain tumors today and those who will be diagnosed tomorrow.
