June 25, 2014: Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers, individuals and team participants that made the 10th annual Head for the Cure a huge success! Another sunny and clear Saturday morning brought us participation with 524 registered runners and walkers. The race results for the timed participants are here. The early estimate of our donation to the ABTA should be in the $33,000 to $35,000 range. We are still accepting online donations for the 2014 event.

June 15, 2014: online registration is closed. Race morning registration is scheduled to open at 7am.

December 15, 2013: Planning is well under way for this year’s fundraiser for the American Brain Tumor Association. Please pencil in Saturday June 21, 2014 as the date for our 10th annual event. We have appreciated the Carmel Indiana parks department working with us all these years to host a safe and quality event for everyone. We had around 75 participants at our first event and West Park was a perfect location for us. However with our continued growth we have decided that a new location is better to serve our participant growth which exceeded 900 individuals each of the last two years. It is currently planned to start and finish the 2014 event at Creekside Middle School located at 126th street and Shelbourne Rd just a short distance from West Park. We are working on a new course this year between 5 and 6K (3.1 to 3.7 miles) and were hoping to include part of West Park in our route. We look forward to you helping us make our 10th annual event special.


This fun, family oriented fun walk/run will be held on Saturday, June 21th, 2014. The event will take place at Creekside Middle School in Carmel, IN

The goal of the day is to raise awareness and research funding for the American Brain Tumor Association.  The ABTA is a not-for-profit, independent organization. Not affiliated with any one institution, they serve individuals globally and award funds to researchers throughout the United States and Canada.

The menu to your left provides access to detailed information about the event and the American Brain Tumor Association and their services. If you have any direct questions, please call the ABTA at 800-886-2282, or send an e-mail to them at:

Join us to make a difference.  If you are interested in helping in any way, please feel free to contact us.
