We are continuing to build awareness about the brain tumour community in Halifax and Nova Scotia, and so, for the second year running, we have joined forces with THE signature event in Halifax - the Blue Nose Marathon.  

Join us and run, cheer or volunteer!

Our tent will be situated in Granville Mall (behind the Delta Barrington) and this will be our meeting place for those that are walking the 5km on Saturday, May 20 and for all Brain Tumour participants BBQ/ festivities right after 5km walk. Parking – Scotia Square.

Saturday, May 20

Official Start Time: 2:00 pm

Cover $5, with all proceeds to Team Brain Tumour, which will support the Canadian Brain Tumour Registry project.
 
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! Here's the best part: Your contribution will be DOUBLED! 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
