ABOUT BRAIN TUMOUR WALK EVENTS
2021 & COVID-19
Physical distancing is the reality for the foreseeable future, and so we are reimagining the Brain Tumour Walk events. As the walk season approaches, we are developing an exciting virtual experience. Our plans include all the best things about our walks: Connecting with your teammates, an inspirational opening ceremony, a high-energy warm-up, and a few surprises. Watch this space for exciting details about our new way of gathering. Being physically apart won’t stop us from coming together. Please register, fundraise, and join us, because together, we will #EndBrainTumours
What is a Brain Tumour Walk?
It is the largest volunteer-led fundraising event in Canada in support of everyone affected by any type of brain tumour.
We walk to celebrate survivors, to remember those who have passed, to raise awareness, and to find a cure, with the hope that one day we will #endbraintumours.
Funds raised go to brain tumour research, support services, health education and advocacy, all of which improve the quality of life of those affected.
Gather a small group of family and friends to walk the block. Together we will #EndBrainTumours.
When is the Brain Tumour Walk?
The online event takes place on Sunday, June 27, 2021, however, you can celebrate and hold your at-home event at any time.

Do I have to walk?
Please walk your way! Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada prides itself on its broad accessibility. As a family-oriented event, adults and children of all ages are invited to walk in their communities. If walking isn’t for you, you could walk your dog, go for a bike ride, or do yoga in your community instead. You would still register as a participant but would have the flexibility to do your own thing.
