Thank you Detroit!

On behalf of everyone at the Head for the Cure Foundation, thank you for helping make the 5th annual Head for the Cure 5K Run/Walk – Detroit an amazing success!

It was a fantastic morning for our signature Head for the Cure 5K, and an unforgettable celebration of hope and optimism for brain cancer patients, their families, friends and supporters! With your help, we welcomed over 1400 runners, walkers, volunteers, donors, sponsors and well wishers — most participating with one of the 60 Head for the Cure teams. We also honored 8 brain tumor survivors during our Keeping the Faithrecognition.  Check out the event photos on Facebook!

Thank you to all of our incredible volunteers who came out to support our cause.  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 event has grossed more than $171,000!

Donations, of course, continue to be welcomed. We will keep the Head for the Cure Detroit donation page open for another 60 days.  So, please invite your friends and family to support this great cause! Funds raised benefit the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC) and locally at the Hermelin Brain Tumor Center at Henry Ford Health System. 

Huge Shoutout to our Sponsors!
