The Head for the Cure Walk/Run raises money and awareness about the need for research on brain tumors.

The Head for the Cure Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and funding for research in the fight against brain cancer. The organization works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy.

Head for the Cure events mark a day of celebration where those diagnosed with brain cancer are honored and celebrated by their friends and families, and those who are no longer with us are remembered.

Proceeds from this event benefit the UNC Department of Neurosurgery and the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative.
