Beneficiaries & Grants

Funds Granted to Local Beneficiaries​

Head for the Cure is dedicated to making a difference in the fight against brain cancer. Our Beneficiary Partners and Grants program is an essential part of our mission, as it allows us to support various organizations and initiatives that play a crucial role in advancing brain cancer research, providing assistance to patients and caregivers, and raising awareness.

As we journey into 2024, the Head for the Cure Foundation embarks on our third decade in support of brain tumor patients, and their caregivers and loved ones.

In 2023, we granted nearly $800,000 to different local beneficiaries, located across the country from our 5K Run/Walk events to support their brain cancer research or programs, and to other national brain cancer programs and initiatives.
