CROSSING THE CANYON

Join us for the fifth annual Crossing the Canyon on September 21, 2019.

THE GRAND CANYON

23.5 miles, 10,141 feet of altitude change. One day.

The Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim trek takes the team from the North Rim down to the canyon floor, across the canyon, then up to the South Rim over 23.5 miles and more than 10,000 feet of elevation change. It is a powerful metaphor for the race to end brain cancer. The canyon represents the valley of death of underfunded research. We know that funding brain tumor research will change the future for those diagnosed with brain cancer and that if money is the problem, it’s a problem that can be solved. Together, we can do this.

2019 DATES: September 19-23, 2019

VOLUME UP, HEART OPEN

The BethAnn Telford Short Film

This is the joyful story of one endurance athlete who, facing brain cancer, becomes a warrior. She fights not just for her own survival but for the children who share her diagnosis, the children she races for everyday.

WATCH, SHARE AND BE INSPIRED.
