Head for the Cure 5K – Metro KC

Solace House and Head for the Cure

Over the past 15 years, the Head for the Cure Foundation has built a strong and sustaining partnership with Solace House. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising awareness and research funding for late-stage brain cancer — an under-funded, and often deadly form of cancer.

Head for the Cure started in Kansas City in 2003, to honor the life and legacy of Chris Anthony. Chris’s wife Kirsten, and children Cole and Caroline, found comfort from Solace House following Chris’s death.

Head for the Cure has provided grant funding to Solace House every year — totaling nearly $100,000 over 12 years.

The Head for the Cure Foundation has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years, now holding events in 18 cities across the US.   They are proud of their association with Solace House and Kansas City Hospice, and look forward to a long and productive partnership.

We invite all friends and supporters of Kansas City Hospice and Solace House to join us at Corporate Woods for the annual Head for the Cure 5K – Metro Kansas City event!
By registering for this event using the promo code SOLACE you will receive $6 off of your registration fee.

In pursuit of a cure
Funds raised from the Head for the Cure 5K – Metro KC event benefit the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC), The University of Kansas Cancer Center, and Solace House.

Together, we will defeat brain cancer step-by-step.
