Seattle Brain Cancer Walk
Brain cancer is one of the most malignant cancers in the world, affecting more than 200,000 people in the United States. There is no known cause. There is no known cure. Survival rates have not changed much in the last 100 years. But despite the grim outlook, there is determination, dedication and a spirited community-driven effort to affect change.
In 2008, Kim Hogle and Swedish neurosurgeon Dr. Greg Foltz founded the initial Seattle Brain Cancer Walk, featuring volunteers who have been touched by the disease and are committed to finding a cure.
Since the event’s inception in 2008, more than $1.9 million has been raised for brain cancer research, clinical trials, patient care, and advocacy here in the Pacific Northwest. All proceeds go to The Ben & Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute. For every dollar raised by a devoted volunteer, another nine dollars are secured from other sources.
Your continued support will help us create new methods of research and discover new treatments for brain cancer. Join us to learn how to participate.
