Join us on Saturday, October 26, 2013 for a day of celebration and commitment at Oak Point Amphitheater. Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk will raise critical funds to support vital brain tumor research and desperately needed services for those living with a brain tumor diagnosis. Whether you’re a runner or a walker, this event is your opportunity to breakthrough for brain tumors while having a great time in a spectacular setting.
There are 700,000 reasons to participate.
Right now, nearly 700,000 people are living with a brain tumor diagnosis—and each day, another 500 people are diagnosed. The American Brain Tumor Association understands how each of these diagnoses can turn worlds upside down. And that is why the Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk is so important.
The American Brain Tumor Association funds vital brain tumor research while providing patients, family members and caregivers with comfort, guidance and answers. Read more about the ABTA.
Whether you're running or walking, the Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk is a "breakthrough" event that will help the ABTA to improve, extend and ultimately save lives.
The Dallas/Ft. Worth BT5K is a 3.1 mile USATF certified course.
Strollers: Strollers are allowed at the event site. Strollers are allowed during the 5K Walk only- not the 5K Run; having wheeled devices during the 5K Run is a violation of USATF rules.
Dogs: Only service animals are permitted on the course.
Family and friends: those who accompany walkers or runners and choose not to participate are welcome to stay at the event site during the event.
