Head for the Cure
We are pleased to announce the inaugural Head for the Cure 5K Run & Walk – Austin, Texas has been scheduled for March 17, 2013 at Camp Mabry. We anticipate this event to be a huge success.
As the Head for the Cure Foundation continues to gain momentum, we are looking to attract new sponsorship support from well-respected companies such as you. During the past nine years, more than 30,000 individuals have participated in eighteen Head for the Cure events in five cities and more than $1.5 million has been raised for brain cancer research. And our organization is growing, with additional 5Ks scheduled in five new cities in the next year.
Head for the Cure was established in 2003 in memory of Chris Anthony. Chris’ struggle with brain cancer brought to light the vast research needs of this devastating disease. Head for the Cure funds the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC), established through MD Anderson Cancer Center. Many of the finest brain cancer research facilities in the country are active members of the BTTC — and the level of information sharing between these organizations has never been greater.
We’re hopeful you can join us this year as a new Head for the Cure sponsor this year, as we push forward to defeat brain cancer step by step. The attached brochure provides more information on Head for the Cure, and the one-page summary outlines the benefits your organization will receive through your sponsorship.
On behalf of everyone associated with Head for the Cure – we hope you will be able to support our cause! I will be in touch in the next few weeks to share information about the Foundation and answer any questions.
Matt Anthony Chairman, Head for the Cure Foundation
