Spring Sprint is run by and for patients and families in 20 cities across Canada. Each participant has their own story about why they participate and how they envision a different future. Here we are sharing some of these stories. Each story is unique and special and shows the impact of a brain tumour. Thank you to everyone who is sharing their story in support of the effort to raise funds to find the cause of and cure for brain tumours while improving the quality of life for those affected.

The hope you feel in each city is incomparable.” Read Ben's story...

Your story can help others on the journey with a brain tumour to feel connected. There are opportunities for you to share your story with the public to raise awareness about Spring Sprint (this includes speaking with staff and volunteers and may include interviews for your local newspaper, television and/or radio stations). If you are camera shy and only want to share your story online, we are pleased to offer that option as well. You can write your story here.
