Brain tumor walk draws in survivors, supporters
Hundreds of brain tumor survivors and supporters from all across the county came out to show their support for the National Brain Tumor Society’s annual walk at Mission Bay on Saturday.
The walkers, who came as individuals or as teams, have been collecting donations over the last several weeks for the cause, mostly through the organization’s Web site.
The 3k walk raises funds for research and support programs that the National Brain Tumor Society provides to patients and families. The society connects patients and families with support groups and caregivers as well as funding research into improving current treatments to eventually find a cure.
The group of about 400 participants brought in more than $80,000 for the organization.
Top teams Walking in Tom’s Shoes, Strength for Sarah and Barbi’s Peeps brought in almost $15,000 of that total.
