Tours will offer a first-hand look inside the brain where you can learn more about brain tumors, brain anatomy and understand the inner workings of the most complex organ in the body. “We’re excited to bring this hands-on, educational experience to our BT5K event series, where people can walk through a realistic replica of the brain to learn more about the brain and brain tumors,” said Adam Wilt, Advancement Director, Events, American Brain Tumor Association. “We are thrilled to be here with our growing 5K event and to help raise awareness and funding for promising brain tumor research and essential education and support services.”
