Our Programs

Head for the Cure is committed to making a significant impact by actively engaging in community initiatives, offering educational resources, and fostering connections within the community. 

We achieve this by following our three guiding principles:

Building Awareness

This disease is not widely known and needs advancements in treatments to help patients.

Head for the Cure advocates on behalf of all who have faced this disease in order to bring light to the need for funding for clinical trials to find comprehensive treatments.

We accomplish this through a variety of different initiatives:

  • Supporting legislation for clinical research and patient access to care
  • Publishing articles and resources on Brains for the Cure
  • Sharing stories from our Ambassadors program
  • Initiating national awareness campaigns

Our 5K run/walk events and other fundraising events and campaigns directly support clinical research and programs.

Through a variety of different fundraising efforts, Head for the Cure supports clinical research and patient programs at local brain cancer clinics and foundations and nationally at the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative. Fundraising includes some of the following:

  • 5K Events hosted across the country
  • Community driven fundraising efforts
  • Memorial donations
  • National and local sponsorships
