The 11th International Brain Tumour Awareness Week will be held from Saturday, October 21 to Saturday October 28, 2017.
Organized by the International Brain Tumour Alliance, the week encourages activities that draw attention to the particular challenges of a brain tumour and the need for an increased research effort.
We have been proud supporters of this effort for many years.

Our Brain Tumour National Conference has been deliberately timed to start International Brain Tumour Awareness Week.
You can attend in three ways:
We have an exciting agenda and cannot wait to see you all (either in person or online)!
We hope that all those attending the Brain Tumour National Conference or live streaming events can please wear grey to raise awareness of brain tumours and their devastating consequences.
The International Brain Tumour Alliance looks for brain tumour organizations, such as ours, to symbolically 'donate' the kilometres you walked at events like Brain Tumour Walk to their Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours campaign.
We have been tallying the amount and will announce the total amount that we will be 'donating' during International Brain Tumour Awareness Week. We hope that you will share this amount with your friends and family and encourage them to join us in your city next year!
If there wasn't a walk near you, don't forget that we have a Virtual Walk that you can do any time, any where, any distance.
The 10th Annual Brain Tumour Awareness Week could be a great week to go for a stroll!
We are also still able to collect your funds raised from Brain Tumour Walk events until December 31, 2016.
Grey is the colour of the brain, and the colour of our awareness ribbon. By wearing grey, and telling people why its important to know the signs and symptoms of a brain tumour, you can help raise awareness of this little known disease.
Our team gathered together recently and all wore grey. If you are wearing grey, share your selfie with us via the form on this page, and let us know if we can share it on social media, or share it on social media and tag us!
We hope to see lots of grey at our Brain Tumour National Conference as well.
Brain Tumour Awareness Week is a great opportunity to raise awareness and also a great opportunity for fundraising. How much you want to do, is up to you!
If you are fundraising, here are some significant amounts to bear in mind:
As we celebrate National Volunteer Week (April 23-29, 2017) we thank all of our 700+ volunteers. Without each contribution, we would not be able to offer the programs, services and events that we do. Each person volunteers in a different way and for different reasons. For Liz, giving back to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada as a volunteer was a “no brainer”.
