Welcome to the Bradt's Brains Team! #BradtsBrains
We are part of the movement to end brain tumours and hope you will support the Bradt's Brains team in this Canada-wide effort to put a stop to this disease.
Those who know us may remember that Rick is a brain tumour survivor himself, having had three brain surgeries between 2000 & 2004 to remove a pituitary macroadenoma. He is one of the fortunate ones who now lives a normal life. Many brain tumour patients are not nearly as fortunate, living with various disabilities, sometimes very severe. Others don't live too long after diagnosis. Many patients are young kids. Rick's mother was diagnosed with a non-malignant brain tumour three years ago - so far, she's doing well. Please join us as a team member or as a donor. Your help is appreciated more than you know.
Walk (virtually) with #BradtBrains on June 27, 2020
Yes, this year, things are different. The Virtual Brain Tumour Walk is happening in one day, June 27th, across Canada. You can join in, wherever you are. We will be walking for the fourth year in a row and we'd love to have you join us virtually on June 27th, getting some exercise and having some fun and raising some money for BTFC. Our team goal is to raise $2,000+ for the Virtual Brain Tumour Walk Windsor. We are grateful for your support! Can we get 55,000 people across Canada all walking that day to #EndBrainTumours?
If you can't do a walk, you can support us or any of the Bradt's Brains team members with a donation. Large or small, every dollar makes a difference.
Al's Flower Pouch by A.M.A. the National Sponsor of #VirtualBrainTumourWalk
Every time you use the hashtag #VirtualBrainTumourWalk on June 27, Al's Flower Pouch by A.M.A. Horticulture Inc. will donate 27 cents to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. Al's Flower Pouch has been a proud partner of BTFC since 2003 and this year we're thrilled to sponsor the Canada-wide virtual walk. Pouches sold in Canada are stamped with the BTFC logo and contact information to help raise awareness and part of the proceeds from the sale of Al's Flower Pouch in Canada go directly to BTFC, too. To date, we've raised more than $100,000 and we want to thank all of the growers, garden centres, distributers and home gardners who have helped us reach that milestone. In addition to walking and donating, you can help support this cause on June 27th by sharing photos of your Al's Flower Pouches with the #VirtualBrainTumourWalk hashtag.

Walking for Hope
Every day, 27 Canadians learn they have a brain tumour. By signing up for or supporting the Brain Tumour Walk, we're making 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 Walks strengthen the national movement to end this life-changing disease and bring 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 Bradt's Brains, and more importantly, for helping the 55,000 Canadians who live with a brain tumour today.
Connie Bradt, Team Captain
