Hundreds of people laced up their shoes to participate in Saturday's Head for the Cure 5K run/walk at Sedgwick County Park.

350 runners participated in the event this year, according to executive director Jenna Heilman.

Right now, there are only four apprived treatments for brain cancer. Because everyone's brain is different however, Heilman says that only 4 treatments is unacceptable.

The first Head for the Cure 5K was held in Kansas City in 2003. Since then, more than 115,000 people have joined the efforts to defeat brain cancer step by step.

Donations are vital to their mission, and the funds go directly to research and programs so more funding equals the more research.  

There are sixty more days to donate money to the cause, and if you're so moved, you can make a donation at head for the cure.org slash Wichita.
