Thank you for making the Fifth Annual Blazer Bolt for Brain Cancer on October 20, 2018 a truly memorable event.
This year brought together 32 teams and 908 registrants – our highest participation to date! The support for this year’s race was overwhelming. Our inaugural Survivor Walk was truly a deeply moving and heartfelt experience as brain cancer survivors, family and loved ones were honored and cheered as they crossed the finish line Each individual and team brought genuine empathy and hope to those battling brain cancer.
Funds raised this year will directly benefit the brain tumor tissue bank biorepository, which stores and prepares specimens for research from brain cancer patients. These funds will advance the much needed understanding of brain tumor biology and the development of future treatments for brain cancer.
