Welcome to The Kevin Mullin Memorial Fund website.
Our family is dedicated to finding a cure for brain tumors. Kevin Mullin was 17 years old when he lost his battle with a malignant brain tumor on August 9, 2001. His wish was that a cure be found so no other child or adult would have to experience the journey of a brain tumor.
Thus far we have been able to raise $286,000.00 for research at Nationwide Children's Research Institute, the American Brain Tumor Association , and Ohio State University Cancer Research Fund.. We know this is only a drop in the bucket so we want to continue this fight and hope to make a difference.
We decided to go back to the virtual run/walk this year because the Charity Day 5K was not as successful as we had hoped.To participate in the virtual run/walk you need to register on Kevin's website, our Face Book page or by US Mail. The cost is $20.00. Once we receive your registration fee you will be sent a bib number. When you complete your run/walk and email us to let us know, you will receive a finisher's medal. You can complete your run/walk whenever and where ever you wish. We would prefer that you do it in May as May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month but it is not necessary to finish by May. More details will follow.
We still hope to raise $15,000 for brain tumor research but we need your help to accomplish this. If you would like to send a donation we will be most happy to accept that. You can again use PayPal or send a check to:
