Have you ever wondered why brain tumor patients couldn’t have their own "Race for the Cure"? Although it is true that some brain tumor patients have disabilities that make it impossible to run, or even walk, five kilometers, there are many others that would gladly run to raise awareness, particularly in the hope that someday a cure will be found. Fortunately, a group of determined North Texas men and women began the Head for the Cure 5K, which raises awareness – and money – for brain tumor causes.
This year, as in previous years, some of the proceeds from the Head for the Cure race/walk will benefit the Legacy Brain Foundation. Our very own Deborah Reed (Legacy Brain Foundation board member, 2011 Keeping the Faith Award Recipient), will be once again assembling a team, and participants are encouraged to form their own team. In addition to the 5K run and walk, a kid’s run will also be offered.
The 2013 Head for the Cure will be held May 11 beginning at 8 a.m. at Oak Point Park in Plano. Winners from each age category will be recognized at the conclusion of the race. This is one event that you won’t want to miss!
