The Brain Power 5K is a timed 5K and Fun Run/Walk with a Kids’ K on September 9th, 2012. This event gives the Central Texas community an opportunity to increase brain cancer awareness and support brain cancer research. Proceeds from the event benefit the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The Foundation also supports pediatric initiatives at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital.
The race will take place in scenic Williamson County Regional Park, just northwest of Austin. Brain Power 5K will be run on a traffic free and UST&F certified course (TX10036ETM.) This route is flat, stroller friendly and will offer one water stop. The day will begin with a Kid’s K at 8am inside the stadium track where the 5K will start and finish and the post-race celebration will occur. There will be age group awards given out on race day and Kid’s K participants will receive a medal. After the race, join in a celebration in the park with generous sponsors offering delicious food and drinks to all. If you are a brain tumor survivor or have one in your life, invite them as they will be honored as special guests of the day. Please contact race organizers with names of survivors or those who have battled a tumor that you wish to recognize.
