Description

Welcome to the first OKC Brain Tumor Walk, an event to raise awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, the Oklahoma City Brain Tumor Walk offers individuals and teams a chance to honor and remember loved ones, connect with others interested in the brain tumor cause, and helps to educate the local community on the diverse needs of the brain tumor community.

Join us for our first community walk/run in memory of Betty M. Nicholson, an incredible woman who touched the hearts of the many lives she entered.
