The Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation is excited to hold our 2016 CBTF Superheroes 5K Walk/run and Kids’ Fun Run. Join us for this family friendly 5k walk/run and help make a difference!  In past years, supporters have been phenomenal and always appreciated by team captains, families, and CBTF.  This event is held in loving memory of children who fought bravely and superhero survivors that fight against brain tumors.

Sadly, some types of children's brain tumors, survival rates are still below 20%.
