Event Details

We are so happy you'll be joining us!

Thank you for generously supporting the MN Brain Tumor 5K! We are proud of the fact that 100% of funds raised benefit the Musella Foundation for Brain Tumor Research & Information, Inc. and we could not have raised this money without your help!

Please bookmark this page and check back as we get closer to the event.  Everything you'll need to know will be listed here!
 
Some things we can announce!
  • Prizes will again be awarded to lucky MN Brain Tumor 5K participants.  These prizes will be given to the top 3 fundraisers and also to random fundraisers - one entry per $50 you raise.  So start working on raising those funds early!
  • We will again be holding our special memorial balloon launch in memory of those we've lost.  Balloons will be available for this launch onsite, sponsored by Ideal Credit Union. 
  • We will again celebrate our brain tumor survivors in attendance!  We will have a special shirt for each brain tumor survivor, take a group picture and have a small gift.
  • We will again have items for sale at the event!  So bring cash!  All money goes toward brain tumor research! 
  • Shuttle buses will be in service again as well to help make parking easier at Phalen.
