The 2017 International Brain Tumour Awareness Week
The 11th International Brain Tumour Awareness Week will be held from Saturday, 21st October to Saturday, 28th October inclusive. We encourage you to organise an activity which will contribute to increased awareness about brain tumours. It could be a walk (see information about the Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours), a picnic, an information seminar, a scientific conference, or the distribution of a media statement to local media which draws attention to the particular challenges of a brain tumour and the need for a special response and an increased research effort.
Please register/report your Awareness Week activity by completing this form.
The 2017 Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours
The 11th Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours will be held between 1 January and 31 December 2017. People are encouraged to undertake sponsored or unsponsored walks to raise awareness about brain tumours and to symbolically “donate” the mileage covered to the World Walk target of circling the Earth at the Equator (24,901 miles or 40,075 kms).
The IBTA does not wish to receive any funds raised by these walks or by other brain tumour awareness-raising activities. Funds raised should be donated to a local or national brain tumour support or research activity.
