Thank you, St. Louis!

On behalf of the Head for the Cure Foundation, thank you for helping make the 3rd annual Head for the Cure 5K Run/Walk – St. Louis such a wonderful and successful event!

It was a beautiful morning for the 5K run/walk and the celebration of hope for brain cancer patients and their families, friends and supporters. There were over 1300 runners, walkers, volunteers, and well wishers — many participating on one of the 60 Head for the Cure teams supporting a loved one affected by brain cancer.

The 2015 numbers are in and this year’s event raised over $96,000!!

 This was our biggest year so far, but we aren’t finished yet! We are SO CLOSE TO $100,000!!
