Nearly 2,000 walkers showed their enthusiastic support for brain tumor research and loved ones afflicted by brain tumors at the Delaware Brain Tumor Walk on April 26th at Wilmington’s Riverfront. It was a day of hope, celebration, and community to support important brain tumor research, advocacy, and awareness. The walk generated nearly $220,000 for the Delaware Brain Tumor Society.
The event broke participation and fundraising records for this 7th annual event founded in 2008 by Chris Grundner in memory of his wife, Kelly. Team Milcendeau, along with friends and associates from Bank of America, raised more than $35,000 in memory of their much loved friend and Chris Milcendeau, who passed in March from a GBM brain tumor. JPMorgan Chase was represented by 400+ walkers in support of the company’s Good Works volunteer program and in memory of their colleague Don Schmitt, who passed from a GBM brain tumor in 2009.
