Brains Together for a Cure Run/Walk is Saturday
Ten years ago Shelly Kuhlman's husband was going through brain tumor treatment at Mayo Clinic here in Rochester. She met Sue Steinmetz, who was the research coordinator on a trial program they were on and together with a few other ladies decided to try and raise some money to bring awareness and educate people about brain tumors.
What started as a hope for a few hundred dollars has grown since then to bring in over 702-thousand dollars for brain tumor research at Mayo Clinic.
The big fundraiser for the year is this Saturday, October 1st at RCTC. It's a walk and 5K and 10K run. Pre-registration begins at 8 a.m. with a start time of 9 a.m.
