We are excited to announce that registration is open for the 4th Annual Brain Tumor Walk and 5K Fun Run!!! This event was organized to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Supported by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Oklahoma City Brain Tumor Walk was organized in memory of Betty M. Nicholson, an incredible woman who touched the hearts of the many lives she entered. Not only does this event honor Mrs. Nicholson, but it also offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember their loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause, and helps to educate the local community on the diverse needs of the brain tumor community.
