Keeping the Faith

As we celebrate 20 years of dedication to raising funds for brain cancer research and inspiring hope for the brain cancer community, we want to know who you run or walk for! At each 5K event, we pay tribute to extraordinary individuals who are currently fighting or who have survived a brain tumor, selected from the nominations submitted by their loved ones.

Sharing the personal stories of those in the midst of their fight is an important part of the awards ceremony. While we recognize the athletic accomplishments of our top runners, we also spend time presenting a Keeping the Faith to the special people for whom Head for the Cure exists.

The struggles and triumphs of our Keeping the Faith recipients are even more poignant when shared with everyone on race day as we pay tribute to what they have survived and what lies ahead for them.
