About Walk for the cure!
The Brain Institute of America is a company dedicated in finding cures for brain cancer. Given brain cancer is a rarer disease, fewer research dollars are being given to study the causes of this disease. Therefore, we are co-sponsoring Walk for the cure! events across the country with our sister organization, The Brain Institute of America Foundation, to raise funds so that the foundation can proceed with its mission to provide grants to scholars-in-training focused on studying the underlying cause(s) of brain cancer*.
So help us in the fight against brain cancer and reserve your tickets now. We’ll be there rain or shine!
