What is the Cup of Hope?

Cup of Hope
The Cup of Hope is awarded annually to the top Brain Tumour Walk fundraising team in Canada. Your team’s name, city, and winning year will be engraved on the main trophy and displayed at Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada for all to see!  As the captain, your team’s name, city, and winning year will be engraved on your very keepsake trophy that we will send to you! All registered members of the winning team will also receive a “Top Team” ribbon to wear proudly at next year’s event. Your support means the world to thousands of Canadians currently living with brain tumours. Because of your team’s fundraising, people affected by a brain tumour will live longer, better and with hope! 

Previous Cup of Hope Recipients

2021 – Greater Vancouver Regional District – Team Tayler

Captain James Hutton and his Team Tayler raised over $34,000, on behalf of James’ daughter, Tayler.

2020 – Sault Ste. Marie – Brain Stormers

In the Sault Ste. Marie home of Kyleigh Provenzano, the coveted Cup of Hope sits high on a shelf, safely away from the hands of three curious little girls.

Provenzano led the nation in fundraising for the 2020 Virtual Brain Tumour Walk, bringing in nearly $40,000 for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada and creating a local movement in the process.

2019 - Hamilton-Niagara - Team Hayden

Eyes might be the window to the soul, but in Hayden’s case, they were telling her Mom that something was seriously wrong with her baby. Hayden’s Mom, Candice, is forever grateful to the ER physician who spotted her brain tumour and the health care professional team who subsequently saved her eyesight. Candice is now advocating for every parent to look to the eyes.

Hayden's Story

2018 - Toronto - Team Stephanie

Stephanie knows how difficult treating a rare brain tumour can be all too well. At age 38, the mother of twins was diagnosed with an extremely rare and inoperable brain tumour – a rosette-forming glioneuronal tumour that little is known about, and cannot be removed due to its location.

This reality does not stop Stephanie from her tireless advocacy or incredible fundraising efforts.
