About Head for the Cure
Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising hope, awareness and funding in the fight against brain cancer. Our 5K events are not only successful fundraisers, but unique tributes to those who are fighting brain cancer and those who have lost their battles. Their memories carry on through the teams that are formed around them, and these teams return year after year to celebrate their legacies.

In pursuit of a cure
Funds raised from the Head for the Cure 5K – Jackson Metro event benefit the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC) and Baptist Cancer Services.
