Jun. 12, 2019:  Head for the Cure will be hosting a 5K on Saturday, June 22, at Bronxville High School in memory of Elizabeth Minter, a beloved member of the Bronxville community who lost her life to an inoperable brain tumor at age 21,

All proceeds will benefit the Bronxville charity Elizabeth’s Hope and the brain tumor research lab of Bronxville resident Dr. Jeffrey Greenfield, who founded the Children’s Brain Tumor Project at Weill Cornell Medicine in Elizabeth’s honor. 

Elizabeth's Hope and the Children's Brain Tumor Project are committed to a single goal: to bring hope to children and families who are confronted with the diagnosis of a rare and often incurable brain tumor.

The race starts at 9:00 am at Bronxville High School at 177 Pondfield Road (runners in front, walkers in back), and the Kids’ Fun Run will take place at 10:15 am. 

There will be a “Keeping the Faith” award ceremony immediately following the race at 10:30 am.
