Introducing the Benjamin Ryan Legacy of Love Award

Benjamin Ryan was an inspiration at Head for the Cure events in Omaha, with such a sense of hope and joy that was felt by all.

We were saddened by the passing of Benjamin Ryan earlier this year. To recognize Benjamin’s care partner(s) in Omaha, for their love and unwavering support of their loved one(s) facing the brain cancer journey, we introduced the Benjamin Ryan Legacy of Love Award at the Omaha 5K Event, awarding it to Ben’s incredible group of family and friends as they’ve continued to spread Benjamin’s positive energy and spirit!
