A brain cancer diagnosis can send families into an overwhelming world of unknowns including the possibility of multiple surgeries, challenging treatments and tough rehabilitations. Brain cancer is a uniquely challenging disease that is in need of critical attention, including extreme steps taken to raise focused research funding. When it comes to our fundraising efforts, we recognize how important it is to take the fight against brain cancer to new heights… 365 ft to be exact.
On November 2nd and 3rd, 2013, we went Over the Edge for Brain Cancer and raised over $100,000 to support San Diego-based brain cancer research (for more information about this research, please click here). OTE for Brain Cancer 2013 was an exciting event, showcasing support from American Idol winner, David Cook, and local San Diego-based brain cancer superheroes, like UCSD neurosurgeons, Dr. Bob Carter and Dr. Clark Chen. Check out the excitement in our 2013 Over the Edge for Brain Cancer video here.
In 2014, our fight against brain cancer continues. We are excited to announce that we will again be going Over the Edge for Brain Cancer on October 31st and November 1st, 2014. Whether you rappelled with us last year or are new to the event, we hope you will join us in this incredible opportunity to rappel down the side of the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego – the tallest waterfront building on the West Coast.
There are no experience requirements to go over the edge -- all that’s needed is the desire to make a difference in the fight against brain cancer…and a touch of bravery. There are a limited number of slots available, so be sure to claim yours today and join me as we Go Over the Edge for Brain Cancer!
Thank you for your support
CEO, Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure
