Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K
May 31, 2020, 8:00 am - 11:00 am$12 – $40
BT5K Chicago is part of the American Brain Tumor Association’s (ABTA) signature Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K series. Currently, more than 700,000 people in the U.S. are living with a brain tumor diagnosis. Your support allows the ABTA to fund desperately needed brain tumor research, patient programs and support services.
At the ABTA, we are continuously amazed by the unmatched generosity of our greater Chicago area community and your passion for our mission. Because of you, the ABTA has been able to fund more than $1.1 million in critical research grants to Chicago-based scientists. Your support has allowed us to create and provide patient and caregiver- focused programs throughout the year. From Partners in Treatment and Care to our annual Patient & Family Conference in Chicago, we continue to explore new programs and relationships right here in your back yard.
