Our Mission is to promote awareness of brain tumors and the need for effective treatments.

Our 11th Annual Event will be held on Saturday, October 7. Join us for a 5K walk or a chip-timed 5K/10K race in honor and memory of those affected by a brain tumor. Proceeds from this event will be awarded as grant funds to brain tumor researchers at Mayo Clinic.

Register online or in-person. Online registration ends at midnight on September 22, 2017.  After this date, registrations will increase by $5 and you will only be able to register on site at RCTC.
