  Hi Brian,

On behalf of everyone at the Head for the Cure Foundation, thank you for helping make the 2nd annual Head for the Cure 5K Run/Walk in Riverside Park, NYC, such a terrific event.

A little rain early in the evening did not dampen the spirits of all those who participated in the 5k and the reception that followed at Ellington in the Park. It was an unforgettable celebration of hope and optimism for brain cancer patients, their families, friends and supporters!

With your help, we welcomed more than 325 runners, walkers, volunteers, donors, sponsors and well wishers — most participating with one of the 22 Head for the Cure teams supporting a loved one affected by brain cancer.

Thank you to all of our incredible volunteers who came out to support our cause. A special thank you to Olivia Chamberlain, Chris Cutone, Jamie Ciamillo, Matt Killen, Victoria Callahan, and Ben Rydell for their continued and unwavering support. Our events would not go on without the help of our volunteers and participants. We are so appreciative of each and every one of you! 

What’s more, and while we are still counting, our 2nd annual New York event has grossed over $25,000! These results are very exciting – and we appreciate your help so much – help us hit $30,000.  Help us reach our milestone goal! 

Results from the race are available HERE, if you would like to check your time, and see how you finished among your age group.  A special HFTC congratulations to our overall 5k winners:

Donations, of course, continue to be welcomed.  We will keep the Head for the Cure New York donation page open for another 60 days.  So, please invite your friends and family to support this great cause and help us reach our goal of $30,000 to help fund brain cancer research.  

Funds raised from Head for the Cure – New York are directed to the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC)

Again, thank you for your participation and support of our 2nd annual Head for the Cure 5K – New York. You are among the thousands of other caring, hard-working and generous individuals, who, together, are helping us defeat brain cancer step by step. We look forward to seeing you next fall for the 3rd annual event!
