Go Gray In May

HOW TO GO GRAY IN MAY: 

There are many opportunities to GO GRAY.

Pick just one, or all. Participating is SIMPLE and FUN! 

In honor of National Brain Tumor Awareness Month, we are encouraging our community of brain cancer research supporters to Go Gray in May! We’ve come up with fun and simple ways for you to show your support and we encourage you to try as many as you’d like. Even better, come up with your own creative ideas and tell us about it!

Our deepest gratitude to everyone who showed their support of our 2014 Go Gray in May Campaign by purchasing their official t-shirt. T-shirt sales are now closed.

We sold a total of 938, raising over $15,000 to support brain cancer research! We hope you will wear your shirts proudly through the month of May, and into the rest of the year.

The fight for a cure continues! Please share your pictures of how you #GoGrayinMay with us on Facebook and Twitter by May 22nd for your chance to win the last shirt!

The easiest way to Go Gray is to wear gray clothing throughout the month and be sure to let people know what you are doing. You can also make signs, stickers or buttons to draw attention to your efforts, and explain to your friends, family and coworkers why you are doing it. Be creative and encourage others to join you!
