Since 3000 Miles to a Cure was founded in 2012, we have covered a lot of ground in the race to cure brain cancer. Our organization has grown from a single athlete’s fundraiser to teams of 3000 Miles to a Cure heroes taking on their own challenges to raise money for brain cancer research. We joined forces with Primacy through Google’s Giving through Glass initiative to give ultra-athletes a chance to share their experiences with their supporters for the greater good. We created a movie shared it with thousands who were touched by its simple and inspiring message: hope.
Each one of those accomplishments would not have been possible without the help of dedicated volunteers. Volunteers have been an integral part of 3000 Miles to a Cure’s success from the beginning. Our volunteers have spent more than 5,000 hours and many of their own resources raising funds for brain cancer research. In fact, our entire staff is made up of volunteers.
