Thank you for making the Sixth Annual Blazer Bolt for Brain Cancer on October 19, 2019 a truly memorable event.
Despite the threat of inclement weather, this year brought together a record 44 teams. We registered 840 participants our 2nd highest participation to date! The support for this year’s race was overwhelming. Our 2nd Annual 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 encouragement and hope to those battling brain cancer.
Funds raised this year will directly benefit both adults and children battling brain cancer who receive treatment at UAB and Childrens’ of Alabama.
Funds raised this year will go toward the goal of raising $50,000 to support the purchase of an Illumina NextSeq 550 gene sequencer. This instrument will accelerate the ability of the program to have in-house data production and analysis for cutting edge genomics from a basic to clinical research perspective.
