Why the NBTI?
The NBTI is a comprehensive program which merges clinical research with medical and surgical treatment for brain and spinal tumor patients. The Institute offers state-of-the-art clinical care, while also providing the resources and support necessary for patients and their families to meet the challenges of living with a brain tumor. The Institute is collaboration between Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Robert. H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
Fundraising for the NBTI
Those who sign up to fundraise for the NBTI will receive full fundraising support, access to Life Time Fitness training programs, and a tour of the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute. There is no minimum fundraising amount to join Team NBTI, however various fundraising incentives will be provided at progressive levels. This is the fourth year that Magellan Development has supported the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute. Funds from this year's race will advance brain tumor research at the NBTI.
