Your registration fees will be covered by Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.
 
Just like the Brain Tumour Walk events, we will ask all our participants to fundraise. This year, we are directing all funds raised to start a Canadian Brain Tumour Registry to count every brain tumour in Canada. International data suggests that Canada has one of the highest incidence rates for brain cancer in the world. However, we don’t know how many people are affected by brain tumours as Canada does not currently systematically count every brain tumour. We need to change that, as every brain tumour counts! Thank you! 
 
To register, volunteer, or for more information, please contact Eileen Quigg at equigg@braintumour.ca or call 1-800-265-5106 ext. 224
 
You can also see more detail on our donation page!
