Seattle Brain Cancer Walk to be held Sunday, May 7

April 12, 2017 | By | Reply More

The 10th annual Seattle Brain Cancer Walk will be held Sunday May 7.

The Walk is a national fundraising event to raise awareness about brain cancer and fund brain cancer research and clinical trials in the Pacific Northwest.

It is a symbolic walk throughout the grounds of Seattle Center and is open to participants of all fitness levels.

Founded in 2008 by a group of committed volunteers and families, the Seattle Brain Cancer Walk has raised more than $4.6 million for brain cancer research and clinical trials in the Pacific Northwest.

Walk proceeds go directly to brain cancer research at the Ben and Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment.

Support the Walk and help us get one step closer to a cure for brain cancer! Donate to an individual, make a gift to a team or make a general donation. Join us as we walk together to build awareness and advance the search for a cure!

Patients and Survivors are invited to this very special place on the day of the Walk. One highlight is the “Gift of Experiences”.
