Head to the Hill

Each year, we encourage advocates from across the country to attend Head to the Hill to learn about the issues that face the brain tumor community and meet with Members of Congress to tell their story and the importance of continued funding for brain tumor research. Despite COVID, the event continues to grow stronger each year, including 2020 where we had record-setting participation from all 50 states.

Gray Nation Endurance

Gray Nation Endurance

Join the National Brain Tumor Society’s Gray Nation by selecting a race or endurance activity of your choice to celebrate a survivor, pay tribute to a family member or friend who battled a brain tumor, or make an overall difference in the fight against brain tumors. Fundraise and participate in your race or activity as an individual or get a team together to create a deeper impact.
