Calgary Brain Tumour Walk 2019



Thank you to all who came to Edworthy Park on Saturday, June 1st in support of the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Walk, and all wearing your yellow or blue shirt to show your support for Adrian, and being such a big part of the AIDZ STRONG Team.

A team of 100 strong yellow and blue shirts walked with Adrian and his family. The organizers asked Adrian if hisTEAM AIDZ” would lead the 5KM walk  - what an honour for Adrian.

Thanks to all of you for making the day so great. Thank you for taking the time to participate in the walk. The AIDZ STRONG Team is very grateful for your contributions to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Charity.  This sincerely means a lot to Adrian and his family. Thank you!             (Andy- Captain TEAM AIDZ STRONG!)

After surgically removing Adrian’s brain tumour on April 22, 2019, a biopsy confirmed Adrian has Glioblastoma (GBM), an aggressive type of brain cancer. It grows fast and spreads quickly. Although there is no cure, there are treatments to help ease symptoms, like chemo and radiation. These treatments will start after May 22, 2019 for Adrian in the hopes of extending his life beyond the 14-16 months average survival rate. Adrian is strong and plans to return to full health as soon as possible.

Adrian and his family are part of the movement to end brain tumours and hope you will support our team AIDZ STRONG - this is a Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease. By signing up for the Calgary Brain Tumour Walk on Saturday, June 1, 2019 our team AIDZ STRONG for Adrian has made a commitment to help end brain tumours and provide the essential information and support that every person diagnosed deserves. The Calgary Brain Tumour Walk on June 1, 2019 (also Connie’s birthday, Adrian’s wife) will raise funds and awareness to support research to eventually end brain tumours. Please join us!

All money raised for the Calgary Brain Tumour Walk June 1st event strengthens the national movement to end this life-changing disease and brings hope to individuals and families across the country:

Hope for progress in discovering the cause of brain tumours.
Hope for better treatments for every child and adult diagnosed.
And most of all, the hope for a cure.

Thank you for supporting our team, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.

Warmest regards,
