Thanks to the generous contributions of our supporters and tireless work by staff and community, the Head for the Cure Foundation has maintained strong growth and financial stability since its founding in 2003. Each year, we grant over $1 million to our national partners and local beneficiaries to design state of the art clinical trials for brain tumors. Please explore our annual report for details on all our fundraising and programs.
At each 5K event, we partner with a local clinic or foundation. A portion of the event's net proceeds goes to that clinic for research and program support.
Through our overall fundraising, we support our national beneficiary, the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC), which develops and initiates clinical trials among participating clinics across the country.
