Winnipeg Brain Tumour Walk 2019

Grey Walkers

We are a part of the movement to end brain tumours and I hope you’ll support me and my team in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease.

In September of 2018 Kathy Mathae was diagnosed with glioblastoma. She immediately underwent surgery to remove the majority of the tumour and has been undergoing radiation and chemotherapy since to slow the growth of the remaining tumour.
Kathy is a nurse at Concordia hospital and is a wonderful family oriented person who up until last September was an active person that loved spending time outdoors camping, biking and hiking. In fact, just a year ago she went on a trip to the Grand Canyon and talked her friends into going on a 10 k hike through the canyon. It seems fitting that a fundraising walk is an ideal fit to support awareness and research to find a cure for this illness.

Please join our team of friends and family for this walk or support someone from the team to help make a difference. 

By signing up for a Brain Tumour Walk, me and my team have made a commitment to end brain tumours and to help provide the essential information and support that every person diagnosed deserves.

All money raised through Brain Tumour Walk events 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 me and my team, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.
