Sincere Thanks to Head for the Cure Supporters

On behalf of the Head for the Cure Foundation, please accept our most heartfelt thanks for your part in the enormously successful 8th Annual Head for the Cure 5K Run & Walk – Metro KC. 

The 2010 event was both exhilarating and record-setting with nearly 4,500 runners, walkers and volunteers — many participating as a member of one of the 91 different Head for the Cure teams in support of a family member, friend or co-worker fighting brain cancer.  

Congratulations to the overall winners — Kevin Miller and Kari Fritchie — and to everyone who participated. Your race results are available here. You can also view and download free photos from the event here.

Six extraordinary people were recognized as 2010 Keeping the Faith Award recipients — Diane Wall, Wally Armstrong, Gary Mumford, Lily Preston, Lindsey Morris-Elwood and Mason Kempf.  These are the people for whom Head for the Cure was created. Their stories are each personal and special, and all are inspiring.  And they’re the reason we keep pushing to grow our cause every year — to raise awareness and raise funds in the fight against brain cancer. 

The Head for the Cure Foundation sends along our most sincere thanks to each and every person who helped make the eighth edition of our signature event so successful. More than $300,000 was raised through the 2010 Metro Kansas City Head for the Cure, and awareness about the need for brain cancer research has grown exponentially.

Mark your calendar for the 9th Annual Head for the Cure 5K Run & Walk – Metro KC – Sunday August 28, 2011. And please remember to check back for future event information and other news from the Head for the Cure Foundation. We also continue to accept donations.

Thanks to the support of thousands of caring individuals, the hard work of hundreds of volunteers and the generous contributions of dedicated sponsors and donors, we are defeating brain cancer step by step!
