The family-friendly event drew more than 2,300 participants from 19 states and raised over $230,000!

The event offers an enjoyable and inspiring way to join the fight against brain tumors. Proceeds stay right here in Cincinnati, supporting research and education at the UC Brain Tumor Center. Led by some of the best doctors in America, the UC Brain Tumor Center provides patients with the best treatment available anywhere in the world while working to find effective new treatments and, ultimately, a cure.

Together we can make a difference and provide help and hope for those affected by brain tumors.
