Brains for BK
Welcome to the Brains for BK team page! This is the 4th year the team will be running for SBTF Race for Research 5K. This year is the first year we run in memory and honor of my brother Brian, who lost the fight to a brain tumor last spring. There is no cure for a glioblastoma, a horrible disease that takes lives too soon. Your donation will help continue to fund research, and ultimately save lives. It's more appreciated than you could know!
Thanks for your support, and see you on race day.
I'm participating in the 19th annual Race For Research which occurs on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at the Pinnacle lot located in Atlantic Station near downtown Atlanta. GA. It is a 5K run, 1K fun-run/walk and a fundraising event which raises money to support brain tumor research. If you've not participated before, there's no time like the present.
You can participate by running (or walking) the course route along with me, by helping me spread the word about this fundraising event, or by making a donation toward my fundraising effort. If you're not a runner, don't worry, many of the registrants are not runners. Instead many of the registrants are brain tumor patients who are just happy to be alive and happy to be able to participate in this event.
Just so you know, the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation is recognized as as a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization and as a public charity. Donations to the SBTF in support of my fundraising efforts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Your support will have a positive impact on the life of a brain tumor patient because it generate awareness about this disease and will help to fund much needed brain tumor research.
Sadly, many of us don't realize how scary a brain tumor diagnosis is until someone we know is told "you have a brain tumor" or "you have brain cancer".
Oh, and one more thing, did you know you can double your donation through employer matching programs? Be sure to check with your Human Resources Department to determine if your company will match your donation. If they say yes, you can double your donation with just a few clicks of your mouse.
