National Brain Tumor Society's Gray Nation Runners Hit the Streets of NYC this Weekend

On your mark, get set, go! This Sunday, 17 amazing runners will put meaning behind their miles in the 49th running of the TCS New York City Marathon. Join us in cheering them on as they conquer all 26.2 miles. Together, the team raised $77,000 to support the National Brain Tumor Society accelerate the rate at which we discover, develop, test, and approve new treatments, while working together to advance a cure.

Launched to partner with individuals looking to put meaning behind their miles, the National Brain Tumor Society's Gray Nation Endurance program is a great way to have fun, challenge yourself, join a community of similarly-focused athletes, and give back to a cause you care about, all at the same time.

Scholarship Fund Launched for 2020 Head to the Hill Patients & Families

Held each May during Brain Tumor Awareness Month, Head to the Hill has become a powerful vehicle to ensure the voice of the brain tumor community is being heard on Capitol Hill. In an effort to increase access and better represent the community we serve in our congressional advocacy, NBTS will provide full and partial scholarships to patients and caregivers who need financial support to help travel to this event. Critical to advocacy efforts on behalf of the brain tumor community, offering scholarships to participants from under-represented states opens the door to more congressional offices, further increasing our impact and the ability to drive positive change for our community.

Give now to support the Head to the Hill Scholarship Fund.
