EndBrainCancer Special Events Throughout the Year
The EndBrainCancer Initiative sponsors various events throughout the year. Our supporters also stage events to help individual patients and to assist us in our work with patients. If you would like to be notified of upcoming events, please join our mailing list at right.
We have taken the liberty to rename #GivingTuesday to something very near and dear to our hearts – the need to provide HOPE to those facing a brain cancer diagnosis. CLICK HERE to watch a short video which captures the spirit of #GivingHopeDay.
16th Annual EndBrainCancer | Chris Elliott Fund Educational Golf Tournament
Each summer, we come together for a golf tournament in honor of our co-founder, Chris Elliott, who was an avid golfer. In addition to celebrating Chris’ life and legacy, this special occasion raises much needed funds to help brain tumor and brain cancer patients locally, nationally and globally receive IMMEDIATE ACCESS to innovative treatments, clinical trials and top brain tumor specialists, neuro-surgeons, neuro-oncologists, researchers and scientists.
This year, we will be returning to the Plateau Club in Sammamish WA. which offers a picturesque 18-hole championship golf course co-designed by Perry Dye and Masatsugu Saito and is designed to suit golfers of all playing abilities. At the same time, it’s ranked by the USGA as one of Washington State’s most challenging courses.
Over the years, the tournament has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the work of the EndBrainCancer Initiative | Chris Elliott Fund. Please join us for a day of fun on this breathtaking course which will be followed by an Awards Banquet.

The Bellingham Brain Cancer Walk
Sunday, May 21st 2017. Registration starts at 11 am.
The Bellingham Brain Cancer Walk is the inspiration of the late Hannah Dashiell, whose grandfather Jerry Jerowski, died of brain cancer in 2007. Hannah did not get to see her dream to completion. In early January 2014, a tragic car accident took Hannah’s life. Her fellow classmates, family friends, and members of the community have taken it upon themselves to see Hannah’s dream brought to completion. The 2017 walk is a tribute to Hannah’s life and an honor to her family. Part of Hannah’s vision for the Bellingham Walk was that it would become an annual event for the city of Bellingham. It is our hope, too, that this walk would continue to be a tribute to Hannah and her family, a service to the community of Bellingham, and an event to support a Cure in our Lifetime.
