MORE ABOUT 3000 MILES TO A CURE
Since October 2012, 3000 Miles to a Cure has ignited what we call a brainstorm, uniting people in hope and action for a cure for brain cancer. To achieve our vision of a future where brain cancer is treatable as quickly as possible, we choose to deliver 100% of individual gifts to brain cancer research. We keep our costs low and where we have them they are covered by our generous corporate sponsors and Board of Directors.
We leverage ultra endurance athletic events like Race Across America to raise funds for the cure. The challenges and triumphs athletes endure are a powerful metaphor for the battles being waged against brain cancer by those who fight it and for the race to cure it.
We are developing a mobile application that will gamify fundraising during these ultra athletic events. We know there is power to achieve our mission in the shared experience of racers and stakeholders. Our app will facilitate and encourage that powerful positive connection.
Email a cover letter, resume, and three work samples or your portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to tell us why you’re passionate about 3000 Miles to a Cure!
