For the last 15 years, the Head for the Cure Foundation has been working to defeat brain cancer step by step, through our 5k Run/Walks, including our signature HFTC Metro Kansas City 5k every August

We are thrilled to now extend our Head for the Cure fundraising efforts to the bicycling community with our 2nd annual, Head for the Cure Bike Ride, hosted by our friends at historic Browne’s Irish Market in mid-town Kansas City.
