Plan Your Own Event
Have a great idea for an event? Almost any fundraiser you can think of can be held to benefit the National Brain Tumor Society. How you choose to fundraiser is limited only by your imagination and ambition – you can plan a bike ride, run, or walk, or hold a golf, bowling, or tennis tournament. You can also hold a dinner, dance, auction, bake sale, or garage sale.
With our online tool for events like yours, fundraising to benefit our programs and to raise awareness is easier than ever. There are a number of ways that we can support you in your efforts to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors, and we are eager to talk with you about your ideas. To get started, or if you have any questions, please contact us at 1.800.770.8287 or CommunityEvents@braintumor.org.
We know that the experience will be deeply rewarding and we encourage you to connect with as many people as possible to support this incredible cause!
