The American Brain Tumor Association’s (ABTA) Team Breakthrough endurance program is a Charity Partner of the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half. Team Breakthrough allows runners - from beginners to the more advanced - to participate in endurance events nationwide while raising funds and awareness to advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors.
Founded in 1973, the ABTA was the first and is now the only national organization committed to funding brain tumor research and providing information and education on all tumor types and all age groups. For 40 years, the ABTA has been providing comprehensive resources that support the complex needs of brain tumor patients and caregivers, as well as the critical funding of research in the pursuit of breakthroughs in brain tumor diagnosis, treatment, and care.
The mission of the American Brain Tumor Association is to advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors with the goals of improving, extending and, ultimately, saving the lives of those impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis.
We do this through interactions and engagements with brain tumor patients and their families, collaborations with allied groups and organizations, and the funding of brain tumor research.
