STRAIN FOR THE BRAIN

Benefiting STRAIN FOR THE BRAIN INC

This will be our Fifth Annual STRAIN FOR THE BRAIN and will be on Saturday May 12, 2012 on Milwaukee's beautiful Lakefront at Veteran's Park, just NORTH of the Milwaukee Art Museum along Lincoln Memorial Drive. The vast majority of the funds raised will benefit LOCAL brain tumor research, largely through Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin's research projects (through the Froedtert Hospital Foundation), but about 5% of the proceeds will also go toward NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL research.  Our goal is not only to raise funding for brain tumor research, but also to raise awareness of the issues that brain tumor patients and their loved ones endure on their journeys.
