TEAM BIG SAM 2015!!! 

It’s that time again for the  5th ANNUAL TEAM BIG SAM at the Portland Brain Tumor Walk 2014.

We are doing it again year and would love for you to walk with us in memory of Dad and join TEAM BIG SAM! The Brain Tumor Walk is a fun and inspirational day where the brain tumor community unites to inspire hope and take action in the fight against brain tumors. 

We had so much fun the past three years and appreciated all of you who participated, donors and walkers. We did not expect the outcome we had last year.  It was amazing to see the support we had in memory of Dad.  Progress in this fight starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time.

This is our movement. Take control and spread awareness in every direction. The more we educate people about brain tumor facts, symptoms and resources, the closer we will get to find a cure. So whether you join TEAM BIG SAM, support the team with your generous donation, or help spread the word about The Brain Tumor Walk, your participation is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
