Recently, Rush Radiosurgery, along with the Radiation Oncology and Neurosurgery departments from Rush University Medical Center, participated in the American Brain Tumor Association’s Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5k Run & Walk.
The annual event was held on Sunday, April 24, on the stadium green at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois.
Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk is the American Brain Tumor Association’s national signature fundraising event and takes place in cities coast to coast. Money raised from the event allows the American Brain Tumor Association to provide vital brain tumor resources to patients and their families, fund promising research studies, and conduct nationwide brain tumor educational programs.
In addition to participating in the race, Rush Radiosurgery served as a table sponsor and provided informational handouts on radiosurgery and giveaways to event participants and their family members.
The Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk was a huge success with over 2,000 participants who raised over $700,000!
Rush Radiosurgery was proud to be a part of such an important event that helped increase awareness about brain tumors and raised money for those battling brain tumors in our community.
