Mission: Continue an annual walk to raise awareness of brain tumors and their impact on those in Central Illinois. There are many misconceptions about those who have or had tumors. Many people are not aware of their tumors, blaming symptoms on other possible causes.
Additionally, funds will be raised for research into treatment and cures for the various know brain tumors. Research currently includes surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, medication, and other possible treatments and therapies.
We also will remember and honor those lost to brain tumors, their families, friends and loved ones and celebrate those who have survived.
What a great 2019 17th Annual Mark Linder Walk for the Mind we had 9-28-2019! The Walk brings together friends, families, loved ones to show support to those affected by brain tumors/ cancer. All proceeds stay local and benefit the University of IL College of Medicine at Peoria Brain Tumor Research Lab! The rain quit just in time for the Walk and it was a beautiful morning!
