Reasons to Run for Brain Tumor Research *
  • About 120 types of brain and CNS tumors have been identified to date, and some have multiple subtypes. Each tumor type/subtype is genetically distinct, making the search for treatments or a cure extremely difficult.
  • For every 100,000 people in the United States, approximately 221 are living following the diagnosis of a brain tumor. This represents a prevalence rate of 221.8 per 100,000 persons.
  • Brain tumors are most commonly treated by surgery, followed by radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or both. Little progress has been made in finding new treatments the past two decades.
  • Brain tumors are the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in children.
  • Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in males ages 20-39 (leukemia is the first).
Thank you for all the support for the Brain Tumor Run for Research 5k!  We greatly appreciate all donations, sponsors, volunteers, and everyone who has helped to raise critically needed funding for brain tumor research and awareness!
