Thank you, Orlando!

February 26, 2018

On behalf of everyone at the Head for the Cure Foundation, thank you for helping make the 1st annual Head for the Cure 5K Run/Walk – Orlando an amazing success! It was a fantastic morning for our signature Head for the Cure 5K, and an unforgettable celebration of hope and optimism for brain cancer patients, their families, friends and supporters!

With your help, we welcomed 225 runners, walkers, volunteers, donors, sponsors and well wishers — most participating with one of the 13 Head for the Cure teams. Thank you to all of our incredible volunteers who came out to support our cause.  Our events would not go on without the help of our volunteers and participants. We are so appreciative of each and every one of you!  What’s more, and while we are still counting, our event has grossed more than $30,000! 

Keeping the Faith Honoree:

In addition to all of our amazing survivors, we were so honored to recognize Joshua Hearndon, Paul Huskins and Pete Newell as our Keeping the Faith honorees.
