Welcome to the page for The Madison Brain Tumor 5K.


Join us on July 7, 2018 at Elver Park in Madison, WI at 9:00 AM for our event.  This 5K run/walk is family friendly and for all abilities.  The course is a certified 5K.  

Strollers are welcome on the course.  No dogs are allowed at Elver Park.  

Prior to the start of the main event, we will have a kids fun run and a silent auction.

If you would like to add the name of a loved one to the back of our shirt please email by May 15th..  We also welcome you to bring a framed picture to the event to place on our memory table.


This event was established in 2014 in memory of Douglas Pink. Doug passed away from Glioblastoma in September 2013. All proceeds from this event will be donated to The National Brain Tumor Society’s Defeat GBM initiative.  We raised nearly $30,000 for The National Brain Tumor Society last year and nearly $100,000 over the past 4 years.

With the goal of raising money to support brain cancer research, we have chosen not to have official timing at this event.
