On October 3, 2015 a small team of warriors will stand together on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon with a shared mission: to beat brain cancer.
The Rim-to-Rim will take the team from the North Rim down to the canyon floor, across the canyon, then up to the South Rim over 21.1 miles and more than 10,000 feet of elevation change. It is a powerful metaphor for the race to end brain cancer. The canyon represents the valley of death of underfunded research. We know that funding brain tumor research will change the future for those diagnosed with brain cancer and that additional funding is needed to help ensure this future.
Maria Parker and BethAnn Telford
With your help we can not only accomplish a Rim-to- Rim run, we can capture and share the story of two women whose impact will extend beyond the walls of the canyon, inspiring and giving hope to those battling brain cancer.
Please join Team BT and help raise money to prevent brain disease. Ireland’s Four Courts Irish pub and restaurant is holding a Happy Hour fundraiser with proceeds going to the Accelerated Brain Cancer Cure and the National Brain Tumor Society! Join us for a Silent Auction, free appetizers and fun at the most popular bar in Arlington.

Please join us for the l Race for Hope - Washington, DC 5K Run/Walk, one of the largest national fundraisers to benefit the brain tumor community!
PLEASE be at Team BT’s tent no later than 7:50 a.m. for a Team BT team photo. This photograph goes a long way for many of us, so please participate in this.
Probably the most emotional walk I have ever done starts at 8:30 a.m. All Survivors report to the Survivors Tent and take that special walk in front of the entire field of participants! If you are not a Survivor, please line up to cheer us all on! (Bring tissues!)
