Brain Tumors in the News
THANK YOU for making our 3rd annual Mid-Michigan Brain Tumor Awareness Walk such a huge success!
Walk for Kate held our 3rd Annual Mid-Michigan Brain Tumor Awareness Walk at the Tridge in downtown Midland, MI on Saturday, May 18! It was a little cooler than last year and there was a hint of rain, but it held off and it turned into a bright beautiful sunshiny day! It was almost perfect weather for a lovely walk and we had a great turnout of over 40 walkers and raised over $600 for brain tumor research and patient care! We can`t thank everyone who participated and donated enough. We also want to give a special thank-you to the wonderful group with Fighting for Katie K, a very special little girl who is battling a brain tumor. We`d also like to thank our volunteers, without whom we couldn`t have brought this event together. You truly moved us with your generosity, and we want each of you to know how much that means to us from the bottom of our hearts. Your donations will benefit many organizations and many, many brain tumor survivors. George and Kate loved meeting each and every one of you, and please, keep up the fight! Working together, we CAN find a cure for brain tumors, One Step at a Time! THANK YOU!
2013 Dow Run/Walk Festival of Races:
On May 18 and 19, Walk For Kate set up at the Dow Festival of Races Expo at the curling center in Midland, MI. Over 5,000 runners for the various races filed through the doors, with many of them stopping by our booth to say hi, learn about Walk For Kate and help raise Brain Tumor Awareness. We took in about $180 in donations, and we thank you very much for your support!
