The word Olé is synonymous with sports and competitive events. It is synonymous with courage, with endurance and with the will to overcome.
When chanted, the word Olé inspires individuals to rally, to rise above themselves in performance, to find added strength, and to dare the competition (aka, the villan) to try to win. Through the brain tumor journey, we dare this disease to beat us.
Team Olé represents a group of resilient brain tumor survivors, caregivers, and advocates. We compete for survival against this disease and are better known as the SBTF Brain Tumor Support Group. The words "you have a brain tumor" have been spoken to us. Many have also heard "and it's cancer". We share experiences, we share tears, we share a common goal which is to raise funds for brain tumor research. We also share our thoughts, our experiences, and need to understand "The New Normal" way of life. Will this disease take us, or will we take this disease?
Olé cancer! We are strong, we are mighty, and we are determined to find a
cure so others don't have to endure the same journey which we've endured.
Olé Olé Olé Olé - chant it with us and show your support by joining us at Atlantic Station in midtown Atlanta on race day Saturday, September 21st, or by making a donation to the SBTF today.
In the interim, thank you for inspiring us to never give up HOPE!
