Next Stop: Head to the Hill in DC!

In a little over two weeks, our many state advocates will gather in our nation’s capitol for Head to the Hill. While the official event begins on the evening of May 6, those arriving early can take part in the CERN Butterfly Release and the annual Race For Hope DC! Advocates with questions on what to expect can check out Head to the Hill FAQ and Travel Information sections.

We are looking forward to seeing our advocates in Washington DC and will be releasing information for people to add their voices to our efforts by writing and calling on their members of Congress to support the needs of the brain tumor community.
