I’d like to personally invite you to Join the Movement to End Brain Tumours. We plan to take action through this Movement in a few different ways this year and I wanted to share our plans with you.
This week we launched a new website for Brain Tumour Walk events! We hope the new website will be easy to use. I’ve had a few people ask about the Brain Tumour Walk name and whether that is the new name for Spring Sprint. Yes, we have moved away from Spring Sprint and included ‘Brain Tumour’ in the name to clarify why we are out there, walking, sprinting and fundraising.
In May we will also be joining our neighbours in the United States of America with ‘Go Grey in May’. In October 2015 there was some furious debate about whether we should change Brain Tumour Awareness Month from October to May, with the consensus being that that would be a great idea. We will still join our colleagues around the world in October with the International Brain Tumour Awareness Week from October 23-29, 2016.
To kick off Brain Tumour Awareness Week in October, we are holding our first National Brain Tumour Conference! This conference is your chance to hear from expert speakers, learn about the latest in brain tumour research and meet other patients, families and health care professionals, either in person or join us via live streaming opportunities. By amalgamating our resources to bring one National Conference, we hope to maximize our impact for the brain tumour community.
We hope you will Join the Movement. Let’s End Brain Tumours together!
