7th Annual Blazer Bolt for Brain Cancer
October 17 2020: A Virtual Victory for the Patients Families and Friends of those Battling Brain Cancer
This year’s 7th Annual Blazer Bolt for Brain Cancer was a shared success for all this past Saturday October 17 2020!
Despite the challenges of the COVID pandemic, participation and support for the 7th Annual Blazer Bolt for Brain Cancer remained strong due to the hard work and effort of patients, their families, and friends.
Twenty-nine teams ran or walked on behalf of love ones and 365 participants registered for this event! As an entirely virtual event this year, many teams and individuals ran or walked their local running or walking routes often with family and friends.
Participants could download their own race photos and view them at
Prior to race day, teams were encouraged to share their team statements and had the option to post them to www.blazerbolt.com if they would so choose.
In the future, Blazer Bolt Inc looks forward to resuming both LIVE and VIRTUAL events in October 2021.
See you there!

about brain cancer & metastatic disease
The brain and spinal cord make up the central nervous system (CNS). Brain and spinal cord tumors are growths of abnormal cells in tissues of the brain or spinal cord. Tumors that start in the brain are called primary brain tumors. A tumor that starts in another part of the body and spreads to the brain is called a metastatic brain tumor.
