Mission

The mission of Head for the Cure is to raise awareness and funding to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. 

We accomplish our mission by three endeavors: 1) Building Awareness for a disease that is not widely known and needs advancements in therapy to help patients; 2) Raising Funds through 5K run/walk events and other fundraising events and campaigns to support clinical research and programs; and 3) Igniting Hope for all who have faced this disease. Learn more how we achieve those goals below.

Head for the Cure is a registered 501(c)3 organization. Our detailed Financials include our Form 990 and annual reports.
