Event Information

We hope you will consider joining BrainUp at our 2nd Annual 5K Run/Walk on October 15th at Soldier Field Stadium Green!

BrainUp, a newly-founded non-profit organization dedicated to bringing greater awareness to brain cancer and supporting patients and their families, was founded to help address this problem. Our vision is to give hope, not fear, to those affected by a brain cancer diagnosis by jumpstarting a collaborative consortium of university hospitals in Chicago – and ultimately, across the country – to speed up brain cancer research. We want to see new therapy and treatments, increase life expectancy, and make brain cancer a chronic disease that can be monitored with quality of life and, one day, find a total cure.

The BrainUp Run/Walk, which will be attended by over 800 people from the Chicago area, will feature a 5K Run/Walk, live music and entertainment, and an awards ceremony where we will present the Olivia Kresach Medal of Excellence Award to an individual in the Health Care field who has demonstrated extraordinary compassion and dedication to the healthcare professionals and brain cancer patients they serve, and the work they do on their behalf.
