What a great year 2013 has been!
Thank you for helping make the 11th Annual Head for the Cure 5K Run and Walk - Metro Kansas City the biggest and best yet.
Elaine Eppright shares her husband's courageous battle with a glioblastoma, the research that helped extend his life, and her relationship to HFTC.
Expansion best describes what’s been going on at Head for the Cure this spring! We added five events this year – for a total of ten in 2013– and added a new staff member to the team! Dae Smith joined the staff full time in May as a coordinator. To date, we have held six events, including two new this year! Each event has been successful and exciting, and we can’t wait for the next four!
BTTC ANNUAL MEETINGThe sixth annual Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC) meeting was held on February 8, 2013 in Houston, TX. Over 80 members discussed the expanding portfolio of BTTC studies (9 either open or in the pipeline). The BTTC is a growing network with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.

Team Chebbs, honoring Brian Ebbitts, has been one of our biggest teams at our past couple of HFTC 5K -Metro KC events. They made this video and it is so special! Watch it here!
Head for the Cure is excited for our two new upcoming fall events: Houston and Tulsa! Given our close relationship to MD Anderson, we are so excited to finally be coming to Houston! Our inaugural HFTC 5K - Houston event will be on Sunday, October 13th at Minute Maid Park. Following Houston, our inaugural HFTC 5K - Tulsa event will be on Sunday, November 3 at Mohawk Park! We have great teams in both cities working hard to help us plan these new events, and we know they will be great! We hope you will join us!
Whether you're volunteering, sponsoring a race team or establishing a memorial, getting involved with HFTC is easy, rewarding and it might just work. Thanks.
