What is SSBTR?


Mission Statement

As an organization, Students Supporting Brain Tumor Research’s (SSBTR) mission is to provide education and leadership development to our youth, furnish a platform for them to play a principal role in effecting positive changes in their communities, promote awareness of how common brain tumors are as the leading cause of cancer deaths among their peers and act as outreach to support affected individuals and their families.

The centerpiece of this student run non-profit is its annual cure-a-thon in Scottsdale, AZ, which serves as a vehicle towards raising support for brain tumor research through soliciting donations and enhancing community and corporate involvement.
