Brain Tumor Research

Help support Brain Tumor Research. The 15th Annual Mark Linder Walk for the Mind will be Saturday, September 30, 2017, at the Peoria RiverPlex. Mark Linder Walk for the Mind is a one mile walk in central IL. Our mission is to raise awareness of brain tumors and, also, their impact on patients, family, and caregivers. Also, the Walk is a way to unite those individuals and their families and to raise funds to support brain tumor research in hopes to find a cure.

Help us this 15th year to raise the amount we donate to brain tumor/brain cancer research to the University of IL College of Medicine at Peoria. In 2016, Mark Linder Walk for the Mind gave $50,000 to the brain tumor research program at the University of IL College of Medicine at Peoria.  

 

Online registration for the 2017 Mark Linder Walk for the Mind is available at https://register.chronotrack.com/r/31534

 

Mark Linder Walk for the Mind is named for Mark Linder, a Peoria native. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor while in his twenties. His goal was to create a place where brain tumor survivors and those still fighting could support one another. Therefore, in 2003, Mark founded the Walk to help raise money for brain tumor research in hopes of finding a cure. While Mark died in 2005, at age 31, the Walk has raised more than $550,000. From 150 participants in 2003, to over 750 people in 2016, the Walk continues to grow. All net proceeds from the Walk is donated to the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria. Furthermore, we are beginning to see results from their brain tumor research program.

 

Together we can make a difference and provide hope for those affected by brain tumors.
