Head for the Cure
About this Race
Head for the Cure 5K – Columbia debuted in April 2010 and is now an annual event in Columbia. Head for the Cure 5K events are unique tributes to those fighting brain tumors and those who have lost their battles. Celebrating the lives and legacies of those with brain tumors has always been central to the atmosphere at Head for the Cure events. Participants raise funds as individuals and through their teams, and they (along with corporate sponsors) are responsible for the more than $1.3 million raised to date for brain tumor research. Some participants show up to race, and many are there simply to show solidarity for a loved one, past or present. Together, they strive to defeat brain cancer step by step.
