Hundreds of San Diegans affected by brain tumors will gather Saturday morning, June 24, at Liberty Station for the San Diego Brain Tumor Walk.
Organized by the National Brain Tumor Society, this event raises funds for research into new treatments as well as programs that benefit individuals with brain tumors.
The Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute and Neuro-Oncology Center at Sharp HealthCare is the flagship health care sponsor for the event.
There will be more than 60 Sharp HealthCare doctors, nurses and other caregivers walking in support of their patients.
The 5-K is at NTC Park at Liberty Station 2455 Cushing Road, San Diego, CA 92106
Opening remarks begin at 9:45 a.m, and the 5K walk begins at 10:10 a.m at Preble Field, located along Cushing Road between Roosevelt Road and Dewey Road.
The San Diego Brain Tumor Walk offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause, and to help educate the local community on the diverse needs of those affected by brain tumors.
More than two dozen of these events are held across the country each year to raise money for brain tumor research and other much-needed programs.
