The Head for the Cure 5K is back, but this year's run has been moved to the spring. The HFTC 5K is a family-oriented activity and a sanctioned run for serious runners. The Head for the Cure Foundation has raised more than $1.8 million for brain cancer research since the first 5K was organized in '03 in suburban Kansas City. The funds raised by Head for the Cure provided the seed money to help launch the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTConline.com), one of the nation’s leading brain cancer research organizations. Head for the Cure proceeds continue to support the BTTC in the ongoing quest to eradicate brain cancer. For more information or to register, visit: HeadfortheCure.org.
